According to the Standard the TfL employee had stepped onto the train to check it was empty after a fault was found on board.

Lily Smith, who was on the platform, told the Standard: "London Underground workers were checking the carriages were empty, whilst telling everyone to stay away from the doors.

"There was obviously some miscommunication between the workers, then the doors shut, I heard a roar of laughter from passengers on the platform and saw his head stuck in the door."

A witness said it took around 10 minutes for him to be freed and TfL confirmed that no one was injured during the incident.
