Cant post in breaking news for some reason ,mods please move to breaking alternative news

This is just breaking now. Station is being evacuated . More info will follow

It is the top story the other 2 are from a year a go, sorry for the confusion. It seems someone was making threats and they evacuated.

www.breakingnews.com...

www.dailystar.co.uk...

Looking for more info. Hopefully this turns out to be nothing. Obviously today being the 11th of September security is heightened.
Maybe it was someone joking or making an offensive comment, to evacuate the station there must be some credible threat, no?
Or are we now letting them win by living in fear??


Update



The underground and train station was temporarily shut and travellers were being advised to stay away.

However the situation is now understood to be under control and the busy station is hoping to resume normal service shortly.

At 6.18pm British Transport Police tweeted: "Officers are dealing with an incident at London Bridge.

"A man has been arrested, normal service to resume soon. Further updates to follow."

So it seems they have arrested someone, not sure for what yet. Lets hope that is all there is

www.express.co.uk...

They are searching the train in response to the mans threats.

Ok update. All clear, Nothing found man arrested..

It says three people have been taken "unwell" and they're being treated by emergency services.

What was this? They performed a controlled demolition, a man made threats.

Could something have been in the package? Keeping an eye on the "3 people who have taken unwell".

Several posts on Twitter mention a "man with a gun on London Bridge".

If it was serious, BBC News would have been all over it.

The Daily Star is a trash news tabloid (that over sensationalises) with more boobs in it than the Sun newspaper...dunno what that breaking news site is.

Until I see a better source, I'll just assume someone jumped over the gate in the station without paying and people over reacted, they do that, especially the police.

Also, to add, I'm pretty sure blowing up suspicious bags/packages is standard procedure these days, regardless.

This seems to be a mix of reports about a current event and another incident a while ago.

The suspect package and controlled detonation do not appear to refer to the current event. Not sure about the people taken to hospital, but again I think that was a previous event.

I get how controlled explosions on suspicious packages can be standard procedure, but how can they be sure that the package doesn't involve something that the explosion could spread? Biological/Nuclear/Chemical?

A controlled explosion (of that type) isn't an explosion as you would think, they essentially try and blow away the detonator and leave the main explosive intact.

I've always wondered that as well. I assume they would check it out first - but if they had checked it out, why would they carry on and blow it up anyway?

Some Twitter posts are now claiming LB has been given an all-clear.

Is it weird that when I did a google search, I found nothing related to this incident? Are they trying to hide this from the world?

I agree it is not a news paper to read to get the news. However they were the 1st to report it. Then ITN then the Express. Nothing on BBC as of yet. Apparently they arrested someone making threats and are searching the train. Hopefully it is nothing.
