British Transport Police (BTP) officers spotted him relieving himself against a wall at around 1pm – in front of stunned commuters.
Officers shared a picture of the man cleaning up – and described his actions as “unacceptable” given that the station’s toilets were open.
The force said in a tweet: “Today’s top tip! If you decide to urinate on 1 of our stations then expect to be given a mop & bucket to clean up after yourself, whilst being supervised.
“You will then be refused travel like this person found out in Worcester today – all whilst a very busy service was emptying.”
In a number of posts on Twitter, British Transport Police Three Counties described the decision to hand the man a mop and bucket as “common sense”.
Asked about the “legalisation” behind giving the man the cleaning equipment, the police Twitter account responded by saying: “No legislation used for the mop and bucket part of it.

“Just a bit of common sense as I don’t see why someone should walk through or clean up someone’s else’s mess.”
Police added that the man was refused travel under bylaw four of the Transport Act 2000.
It allows officers to stop people using trains if they are intoxicated or in possession of alcohol.
