Police were called to Fitzwilliam Railway Station after a passenger and a train conductor got into an argument over a travel card.

Officers from the British Transport Police (BTP) were called at around 3.50pm on Friday, January 10, to reports that a woman was refusing to leave the train and was preventing the doors from closing by standing in the way.

The passenger and the conductor had disagreed over the validity of a rail travel pass. The woman had left the train when officers arrived.
