Grace Jones In Train Row

Actress GRACE JONES was thrown off a EUROSTAR train between Paris and London yesterday (5APR05) after allegedly attacking a member of staff.

The former JAMES BOND girl was escorted from the train by police when it stopped at Ashford, Kent, shortly before the locomotive terminated in London - after refusing to pay for an upgrade to her ticket.

Although Jones, 56, had a $570 (GBP300) first class ticket, she was seated in a premium area. When she was asked to pay an extra $130 (GBP70) she allegedly grabbed the train manager's arm.

Eurostar communications director PAUL CHARLES says, "Grace Jones was challenged by the train manager and was told that, as she did not have a premium class ticket, she would have to pay for an upgrade.

"She said she had no money and refused to move from the carriage.

"Passengers told us that she was arguing and verbally abusing the train manager. She then attacked the manager, grabbing her arm."

A British Transport Police spokesman adds, "Ms Jones was challenged over her ticket and asked to pay an excess charge. She refused to pay and officers were called. She left the train at their request. No further action is being taken."
