What is Tube staff supposed to do with people wanting to sleep in the station when the station closes?
They may say that they have nowhere to sleep and they are tired etc. What should tube staff do in such situation?
I'd have thought the member of staff would ask them politely to leave and if they don't they call the police to move them on as they are clearly trespassing at that point. You can't have people kipping in potentially dangerous surroundings now can you? If one of them fell under an engineering train or something because they were left there instead of being moved on you can bet your bottom dollar that somebody would try and sue the railway......

Basically what everyone else says, ask them to leave and if they don't call BTP.
Section 13 "Control of Premises" Paragraph 2 of the Railway By Laws states "No person shall loiter on the railway if asked to leave by an authorised person" while Section 24 "Removal of persons" lists the means by which you can remove that person.
In fact its worth your while reading the entire railway by laws and conditions of carriage to know what is and isn't allowed on the Tube and what authority staff have to enforce those conditions, a lot of stuff they don't bother telling you during training
