Controlled bombing at Greenwich Tube

Post by magica on Thu Oct 20, 2016 4:39 pm

The bomb squad blew up a package found on the train at Greenwich 02.

Trains are obviously delayed. No one hurt. I don't have any other news on this just yet.

UPDATE: Anti-terror police investigating after 'suspicious item' detonated by 'bomb squad' at North Greenwich London Underground station

Counter terrorism officers are investigating a suspicious item found on the tube at North Greenwich.

The station remains closed after train staff alerted police to the item on an eastbound Jubilee line train just after 11am this morning.

The station was evacuated and a controlled detonation of the item has taken place.
"Specialist officers from BTP and Metropolitan Police attended the scene. As a precaution a controlled detonation has since taken place in order to ensure the item was safe.

"An investigation is now underway led by the Metropolitan Police supported by BTP.

"The station remains closed as enquiries continue and we encourage people to check with Transport for London before travelling."

Photos and videos from the scene show that the station and the O2 arena have been taped off.
