A Tube worker caught on camera yelling at an elderly passenger has resigned, Transport for London (TfL) said today.

Video footage shows customer service assistant Ian Morbin calling a passenger "a jumped up little git" and accusing him of acting like a "little girl".

Mr Morbin also appeared to be suggesting the passenger should be "slung" under a train in the incident at Holborn station in central London on October 15.

The TfL statement said: "Mr Ian Morbin, a customer service assistant at Holborn Tube station, has advised London Underground (LU) that he wishes to resign for personal reasons.

"He has informed us he would like to apologise for the incident involving a passenger at Holborn Tube station on Thursday October 15 and hopes that his actions have not detracted from the professional job done by hundreds of LU staff every day.

"We have accepted Mr Morbin's resignation with immediate effect. As we made clear from the moment this incident was brought to our attention this kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable and does not represent the way our staff go about their jobs helping millions of customers every day."
