“First and foremost our thoughts are with the individual concerned and we have been working closely with the emergency services at the scene of this incident.

“We will also fully assist the relevant authorities in the investigation that will be undertaken including reviewing our onboard CCTV footage.

“We are not in a position to comment any further at this stage.”
