Train driver attacked by seagull

The driver of the 8.15am train from Hastings to London yesterday morning was walking along the platform when a seagull flew down and struck his head

He was checked over by first-aiders following the attack and resumed his duties around 15 minutes later, but not before an announcement had been made explaining the reason for the train’s delay.

One waiting passenger, foster carer Liza Donaghue, told the newspaper: ‘No one had really taken any notice until that point, then everyone looked and started looking at each other and saying, "Did he just say what I thought he said?"

‘Then everyone started laughing. People could not believe it.

A spokesman for Southeastern Trains said that while seagull attacks are rare, they can be very dangerous.
