Two year's ago I was on a train from Manchester to Milton Keynes and for a strange reason we stopped outside Milton Keynes, the driver kept repeating
that it was signal failure. I was called by the person giving me a lift and he told me there was a huge amount of police vehicles and officers outside
the station, a little later he called me again and told me they had a very suspicious person on board the train I was on.
Rumours started to spread through the carriages about a man forcing people out of their seat's and moving forward through the carriages slowly, the
driver informed us that the signal was fixed and we were to continue to the station.
I exited the train immediately and on the way out I looked into the carriages as I walked to the station exit (I was on the last carriage so I had to
walk past five or so other carriages) in the second carriage I saw armed officers approach a man in his seat. I don't remember what ethnicity he was,
but I'm quite confident that he wasn't white. He had a little tangle with one of the armed officers and then he got hit several times in the face by
the butt of H&K MP5, as I left the station I was held behind to give details in case I would be needed as a witness.
Day's afterwards I looked for news on the event, I regularly checked the Milton Keynes official police force site, I checked all the national papers
the next day and for a week after the event and there was na-da. There was a small mention of a man being released and not charged for a crime related
to rail travel about a fortnight after on the police's site but it didn't confirm the date of the alleged offense, so I'm not sure if that was
But I was spooked, I thought it would have been mainstream news across the UK but it wasn't and still to this day I don't know why.
I wouldn't be surprised if these kind of incidents have happened more often than we have been informed of.
Just did a google news search and I found one tiny article in regards to the event, and just to warn you it is tiny.
