    His successful attempt to get a train carriage to sing in unison has gone viral after being picked up by numerous websites around the world.

    The 66-year-old strawberry farmer had been in the capital celebrating some good news for his son Dan, KentOnline reports.

    "I had been celebrating the release of Dan's new single, "That's Enough For Me", over a glass or two of champagne with friends in London,” he said.

    "It seemed to me that like-minded bon viveurs in my carriage might enjoy a jolly song on their way home."

    Clews said the “spiritual” song had been sung at the rugby club, Old Whitgiftians in South Croydon, for many years.

    Mission accomplished.
