He was arrested at 9.14am by British Transport Police officers on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

The man has been released on street bail, which means the he will have to report to a police station at a pre-arranged time in the future.

Twitter users used the social networking website this morning to comment on the police presence at the station.

Meanwhile, Jack Head tweeted: “Given number of police officers/ticket inspectors at the station, one might think Twickenham is expecting the arrival of a Nazi war criminal.”
