A knife-wielding man who threatened a Tube worker after they asked him to step back from the edge of the platform has been sentenced.
Daniel Philp, 21, threatened the member of staff at South Woodford station in a fit of rage in March this year.
The worker had asked him to take a step back from the edge of the platform as he was very close to the edge.
But when confronted, Philip, of Barfields, Loughton, Essex, became abusive and brandished the weapon before threatening him.
The member of staff left the platform and called for police assistance.
