WATCH: As heat sends tempers soaring, man chases dog on London railway
London - London commuters were fuming
after a man lost control of his dog at a railway station and
chased it down one of the capital's busiest stretches of track,
adding to transport delays on Britain's hottest July day on
Twitter users posted images on Thursday of the dog leaping
over the tracks near Waterloo Station and another clip of a man
running after it, leading to the suspension of train services.
"Well done to the person at Waterloo who on the hottest day
of the year jumped onto the track in pursuit of their dog,
requiring all 24 platforms to be shut down and all power and air
con turned off on waiting trains packed with people," tweeted
Iain Martin, a columnist for the Times newspaper.
South Western Railway, which operates trains in and out of
Waterloo, said lines were reopened about 30 minutes after the
incident was reported.
