A badger at Stoke-on-Trent train station caught the attention of staff when it was spotted running along the platform on Sunday evening.

Ryan Meyrick, 25, saw the creature while working as a dispatcher at the station, and filmed its progress as it surveyed its new surroundings.

“It’s a badger, oh my god there’s a badger!” Ryan can be heard saying.

One Twitter user asked: “Did he miss his connection?”, while another tweeted: “Employee of the month right there working hard.”

“It’s common for us to see foxes passing by but I’ve never seen a badger before!” Ryan told the PA news agency.

“It just ran down the platform and disappeared in the darkness.”
