A TRAIN had to be held in a station while a group of dangerously annoying drama students were removed, it has emerged.
The students were identified after passengers reported seeing bellends singing show songs and gesturing lavishly, clearly with the intention of making people look at them.
Rail staff subsequently decided it would be unsafe for the train to continue on its two-hour journey with dangerous levels of irritation on board.
Commuter Nikki Hollis said: “If I’d had to listen to how ‘Hamlet is a seriously awesome play’ all the way to Bristol I might have smashed a window and hurled myself to my death.
“That and them doing strange poses in the aisle which looked as if they were rehearsing, but were actually just them showing off.”
Railway manager Stephen Malley said: “Drama students on public transport are a menace to themselves and others. Mainly others.
“If you see someone wearing a hat with a feather in or conspicuously doing vocal exercises, do the responsible thing and tell a member of staff.”
The service was delayed for 45 minutes while the students were ushered onto the platform, where they began prancing around and singing bits of Chicago.
