"Then two guys stumbled into our carriage and all the people on our carriage moved naturally away from the door".

Mr Roberts said he had his T-shirt over his mouth because he could not breathe and his girlfriend was "spluttering".

The train was taken out of service and transferred to a depot where it is in quarantine.
