    You are right Ment, it may have major repercussions, but it seems to have gone quiet.
    Nothing from the police, little from the rail networks (apart from a review of evacuation procedures) little in the newspapers.
    Was it a case of "jumping the gun" person at the scene asking someone leaving the station, well there was a bang, a bit of smoke, and I think I saw someone using an e-cigarette.......
    Only time will tell after investigation.

    If it were not for reading this thread, I would never have known about this incident and I watch the six o clock news every day. Must have missed this bit.

    It looks like the original report may have exaggerated a bit. I had to dig to find it on the BBC website and there were no updates, so I'm guessing they may have got everybody back in without cancelling any trains.

    Hehe looks like we were all scandalised about it more than anyone else seeing as I've not found any follow ups on the story either. I did wonder whether it was as bad as it seemed after seeing this guys tweet...I thought either its a load of fuss about nowt or that guy has balls like watermelons/was too tightass to abandon his overpriced cuppa :18:
