A Tube Passenger Inadvertently Took A Terrifying Picture Of Ed Miliband

"This guy on my train won't stop staring at me."

This photo was taken last night by Labour supporter Robert Crego.

He told BuzzFeed he got on the Northern line at Leicester Square only to find himself in a carriage with former Labour leader Ed Miliband.

"'That's definitely Ed Miliband', I thought. Basically I tried to get a photo and the one that I got was him looking directly at the camera," he said.

The 25-year-old, a clinical researcher at a cancer charity, said he felt "voyeuristic" taking the photo.

"But it was just a bit of fun, and I think he thought it was just a bit of fun too."
