Detective Constable Bob Gee, from British Transport Police, said: “Two men arrived at the station on bikes and began removing tools from their backpacks.

“One of them damaged a CCTV camera with a hammer before both men began trying to break into a ticket machine.

The pair did not manage to steal any cash, but the damage to the ticket machine and the CCTV camera was huge.
