Ted Terry, 59, was on Friday cleared of a separate matter. He had been accused of headbutting Amarjit Talafair following a dispute over a cigarette outside a City of London pub on March 22 last year.

But on Wednesday it emerged he had subsequently been fined for racial abuse in May last year.

The Old Bailey heard Terry had pleaded guilty on May 24 to the incident, which happened on May 12 after he missed a train.

He told station staff: “What do you mean it’s gone? I’ve got a ticket you f****** moron. How am I going to get home?”
