Crabs were spotted catching a train back to the coast at the Gateshead Metro Station, in the UK.

This video was posted on Twitter and it shows plenty of crabs trying to get a ride back to wherever they came from.

In the footage, the creatures appear to be heading back onto a stopped train to Tynemouth, reports the Chronicle Live.

Bemused passengers look on as the crabs crawl along the platform in the video, which appears to have been shot at 1.30pm on Thursday.

However, they did not just hop on the train, Metro bosses say a passenger was carrying them in a plastic bag which then seems to have split open.

The person then left the station without picking them up. The station’s cleaners were called and they removed the crabs.

A Metro spokesman said: “The cleaner removed the crabs from the platform at Gateshead Metro station after a passenger dropped them when their carrier bag appears to have split open.”
