A pigeon that found its way on to a train got passengers in a flap this afternoon.

The bird fluttered into a carriage of a Greater Anglia service from Liverpool Street to Chadwell Heath at about 3.15pm.

One passenger tweeted “I’m going to collapse” before moving carriages to avoid it.

It is thought to have made its own way off the service as it continued towards Shenfield.
