Trains were delayed this morning after a vulnerable woman ran away from hospital.

Richmond Police were called at 10.50am to Barnes railway station to reports that a vulnerable woman had absconded from a south London hospital.

Police officers from the Met and BTP, along with ambulance crews, went to the station to find her, leading trains to stop for a “short time”.

The woman, in her late teens, was detained by police officers and taken to hospital for treatment.
