A train passenger who pays £6,000 a year for a season ticket has been fined for standing with just ONE FOOT in a first class carriage.
The un-named commuter was stopped by a ticket inspector, Wednesday night on the Greater Anglia Trains Liverpool Street to Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, service in London, United Kingdom.
The train was packed full of passengers leaving the un-named woman no other choice but to stand by the doorway with a single foot in the compartment.
She was confronted by the inspector in front of astonished commuters when the train stopped in Shenfield, a suburb of Brentwood, Essex.

Taking to Twitter, other commuters vented their frustrations at the treatment of the woman who was overheard saying that she pays £6,000 per year to get between Stratford and Colchester and rarely ever gets a place to sit.
Ben Cooper tweeted: ‘Someone is trying to charge a woman for having STOOD in the doorway of first class on packed train and I’m about to blow my f***ing top.
Meanwhile, Katie Burnell tweeted the Greater Anglia train service to say: ‘The ticket inspectors on the 18:35 LST- Clacton on Sea are behaving like bullies.
‘A woman is being charged a fine that is completely shocking – she stood one foot in 1st class in a packed carriage.
‘Something needs to be done. They’ve cornered her. Camera in the carriage needs to have the footage reviewed. SHE DID NOTHING WRONG.
