THIS is the shocking moment a London train passenger headbutts a “crazy” commuter in an apparent rush-hour row over seating.
A tall man with short ginger hair wearing a suit is seen arguing with a smaller man against a C2C train door before striking him with a sickening blow to the face.
The smaller man – who has a speaks with a heavy accent – rants at passengers on the packed train, which is believed to have been travelling from London to Southend-on-Sea.
He then shouts at the taller male, who is wearing a suit: “Look at me I’m stupid! Look at me I’m stupid!”.
He continues yelling and holding the taller passenger, who snaps and strikes him with a vicious headbutt, knocking him to the floor.
The crack of the blow causes horrified commuters to gasp at the savage strike, which sends the smaller man flying.

Some passengers laugh at the gut-wrenching headbutt after the incident, which is said to have taken place between Barking and West Ham.
One eyewitness described the man who was hit as “crazy” and said the row was sparked when he tried to sit on the back of two chairs.
The witness posted on Facebook: “He was literally sitting on people’s head.
“A commuter who was on the seat took offence, rightly so.
“They had words, it turned into a fight. The fight got broken up and the guy was taken to the doors to calm down.
“He was mental – shouting and swearing at the guy who was holding him.
“The crazy guy tried to push his way out of being held.
“The guy holding him had enough and gave him a lovely head butt. It sounded painful. But the guy was a nutter.”
Another passenger wrote: “He was dragged off the train by two guys and held down on the platform.

Another passenger claimed the man who was hit was arrested at Upminster Station.
