A man in a suit has awarded himself the special privilege of skipping the queue at ticket barriers, it was revealed this morning.

Commuters at Euston were left puzzled earlier today when one man waltzed to the front of the otherwise orderly queue to touch out on the Oyster readers.

The man in question, however, then pointed out he was wearing a very expensive three-piece suit.

"This very expensive three-piece suit is a fast track pass to my very important job," Kieran Matthews, 43, explained.

It is estimated Matthews reached his Moorgate office a whole minute earlier than his fellow commuters — something he later claimed was 'very important to him'.

"I was able to fire off at least two emails to other very important people in suits with the time I saved." he added.

On learning of Matthews's importance, fellow travellers applauded his actions: "To be honest, I deserve to wait for having such an unimportant job," conceded nurse Sarah Kelley, 26 — one of the commuters that Matthews had every right to barge out of his way.
