Grace Jones denies train attack

Actress Grace Jones has denied attacking a train manager during a row over ticket fares on a trip from Paris to London.

The 56-year-old was reportedly thrown off the Eurostar service shortly before it arrived in the British capital on Tuesday after she was discovered in a premium carriage with a first class ticket.

A Eurostar spokesperson alleges she became abusive and grabbed the female manager after she was asked to pay to upgrade her ticket.

But Jones insists there was "definitely no physical confrontation"and asked to be let off the train - claiming she was issued with an incomplete ticket without a price on it."
