British Transport Police have charged a man in relation to a series of alleged vandalism attacks on trains across Croydon and the south east.

Bonney Eberndu, 36, of no fixed abode, was arrested by officers in Camberwell Green bus garage yesterday (Wednesday).

The charge relates to around 22 incidents on trains where human excrement was found smeared in carriages.

It is estimated that the alleged vandalism caused thousands of pounds worth of damage as well as leading to some carriages having to be taken out of service.

Eberndu was remanded in custody and will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court tomorrow (Friday).
