A man will appear in court next month after climbing onto the roof of Stratford train station during rush hour.

Kanat Asanov, 21, of Long Court Mews, Wanstead, was charged with causing a public nuisance following the incident at about 6.30pm on Thursday last week.

Hundreds of commuters faced hour-long delays to their journeys, as the station was closed temporarily.

Mr Asanov has been bailed to appear at Highbury Magistrates’ Court on October 24.
