Drunk man tried to walk down up escalator

A drunk Japanese businessman was caught on camera trying to walk down the escalator the wrong way on the London Underground.

The man, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase, tried to make his way down the up escalator at Tottenham Court Road tube station, reports The Sun.

Sam Napper, 27, from London, who filmed the incident, said: "We quite literally bumped into this chap on the escalators between the Northern and Central Lines at Tottenham Court Road station

"One by one, concerned commuters tried to steer him in the right direction, to no avail. Our bespectacled hero just kept walking.

"Eventually, we let the poor sod out of his hamster wheel-like hell and pushed the emergency stop button.

"After pausing for a few seconds, he turned around and walked out, as if nothing ever happened, saying nothing, leaving us stunned."
