Cops kick 'covidiot' passenger off train in face mask scuffle.

A COVIDIOT passenger was kicked off a busy train for not wearing a facemask after a furious clash with cops.

The traveller was blasted as an “idiot” by disgusted commuters on a train to Surrey Quays, South East London.

Face masks have been mandatory on public transport since June 15 in England.

Anyone travelling without one faces a fine of £200 with repeat offenders charged up to £3,200.

A video of the clash, filmed by other passengers, shows the man having a blazing row with a British Transport Police officer as he is ordered to wear a mask or get off the packed train.

Eventually, another commuter gives him a spare covering to wear.

The cop then barks at the man: “Put it on. Keep it on. Stop giving me backchat and all of you spread out! You’re not meant to be in a group this big. Spread out.”

But the passenger hesitates to put the mask on, while the officer warns “Put it on now or you’re getting off!”

The passenger says to the cop that he’s wearing the mask but at no point does he attempt to put it on.

His friends repeatedly shout at him to put the mask on too and end the argument.

Eventually, the cop shouts: “Last warning!” leading to the passenger finally putting the mask on.

He then complains loudly: “I saw this man staring at us! This guy!”
