Right from the video game: 

Ali, who captured the video, told BBC News, “It was like a scene from Grand Theft Auto, the video game.” Ali said that he was so amused by the incident that he even missed his train. From the CCTV footage of the railway station, the driver can be seen speeding away from the police and entering the tracks by ramming into a barrier.

One of the drivers at Chestnut Station Cars was injured in the collision when the thief tried to escape. Because of the series of events, Greater Anglia, Stansted Express and London Overground services were temporarily affected. It was later reported that the car had been removed from the railway line to immediately start the repair work to resume the railway operations. The trains did resume after a small delay.
