Speaking to The Telegraph, Mr Bunting said that he had expected to exit the train with no hassle.

“I just sort of stepped out and dragged Chevy (his guide dog) after me,” he said.

The incident, which happened last Friday night, left Mr Bunting with an injured ankle, knee and arm. Chevy fell on top of him, and avoided hurting himself.

The train driver soon realised what had happened and guided Mr Bunting and Chevy to safety.

“I think I was very lucky, it could have been worse,” he said.

He warned other blind people catching trains in the area to be as aware as possible and avoid getting in the front or end carriages.

“Don’t trust them, get in the middle of the train. What else can you do?” he said.
