Train passengers in furious row after man refuses to move bag off empty seat

Two men get embroiled in a row over a bag taking up an empty seat on a packed commuter train.

The argument kicked off on the C2C train travelling between West Ham and Barking in east London.

It is not clear how the pair started to annoy each other, but fellow commuter Jacob Telford started recording after the raised voices filled the carriage on Monday.

Mr Telford said: “One passenger asked another to move his bag from the seat and it quickly escalated."

The man with the bag can be heard shouting back telling the other passenger that he is the problem, not his bag, and he should move if it’s annoying him.

In the clip, one man can be heard saying: "If you lay a finger on me, you'd be in court so fast you wouldn't know what hit you.

"The courts will deal with you."

The man retorted advising him to "read his paper".
