A man repeatedly stabbing a nurse in a station lavatory cubicle looked up when a British Rail ticket collector shouted at him - but still carried on, Reading Crown Court was told. The ticket collector then chased the alleged attacker, Thomas Stewart, who turned round and said calmly: 'He had to be done in, I had to do him in,' David Stokes QC, for the prosecution, said. Mr Stewart, 42, a dye maker from Reading, denies murdering trainee nurse Richard Lyddon, 36, who was on his way home to Taunton, Somerset, from a job interview in Slough, on 10 January last year.
