A plumber who pleaded guilty to using threatening words and behaviour against staff members at London Bridge train station was fined and ordered to pay compensation.

Lukas Rasala, of New Cross Road, became agitated when he was told by staff that the train for which he was waiting would leave from a different platform to usual.

He took objection to the staff member’s tone and swore at him. Another staff member arrived to try to calm the situation and Rasala also swore at her.

The 32-year-old said: “I want to say sorry for the situation. The Overground wasn’t working and the train wasn’t there.”

Rasala was fined £135 for using threatening words or behaviour to cause harrasment, alarm or distress and was also ordered to pay £25 compensation to both victims.
