Police are now desperately trying to trace the Good Samaritan who leapt onto the train tracks at Tottenham Court Road Underground station in London on Tuesday.

His heroic act came after a 47-year-old man, who was standing on a northbound Northern Line platform, suddenly became unwell and fell onto the live tracks.

Dramatic pictures show the bystander jumping onto the rails and pulling him safely back onto the platform during the incident which occurred just before 5pm.

The ill man was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to hospital.

Officers said they have since been told he received light cuts and bruises and will make a full recovery.

Praising the work of the bystander, Superintendent Chris Horton, of British Transport Police, said: ‘Going onto the tracks is extremely dangerous but the bravery of this man has to be praised.

The man sprung to the rescue and hauled him back onto the platform, whilst other commuters alerted the emergency services.

‘Whilst the approaching train was immediately put on a red signal, the quick thinking of him and other passengers on the platform avoided what could have been a tragedy.
