Passengers shocked at gunpoint robbery at Brockenhurst Railway Station
RAILWAY users told of their shock after a man was robbed outside a New Forest station.
Passengers waiting at the quiet railway station expressed their surprise that this had happened in such a rural area and sympathy for the victim.
Jo Handy, from New Milton, said: “I think that's appalling and it's very frightening.
“If you can't drive your car, get on a train...poor bloke, it's terrible.
“It could have been anybody - it could have been my husband, he gets on early trains sometimes.”
Jill Jenkins, from Brockenhurst, said: “It's scary. It's surprising, but everything happens these days, nothing surprises me any more.”
A member of staff at the railway station said they had only become aware of any issue when the police turned up later.
