After a portion of Denver International Airport was evacuated yesterday following the terrorist attack in Brussels, Kings Cross Station in London has been evacuated on Wednesday as emergency situation has been declared!
From The Express:
Early reports suggest the evacuation is due to a fire rather than being terror related.
However, commuters, already on high alert after yesterday’s terror attack on the Brussels Metro system and the city’s airport, ran from the station after the alarm was sounded.
An eyewitness, who was on the Tube at the time of the alert at around 11.30am, told Express.co.uk: “After yesterday, this was genuinely terrifying.
“Never seen people run for the doors before.
“I helped a woman with crutches get up the stairs, there was genuine panic. It went very quickly from eye rolling and inconvenience to everyone being scared and hurrying out.”
London Fire Brigade vehicles can be seen at the scene.
The incident was reported to have happened on the Victoria line.
Ben Hooke tweeted: “King’s Cross evacuation due to a ‘fire alert’ certainly had a few people on the Victoria Line fairly jittery.”
British Transport Police played down the alert, tweeting: “Station evacuated following a fire alarm activation. Nothing suspicious and the station is now reopening.”
Transport for London reported there was also an earlier fire alarm at Holborn, which is causing major delays on the Picadilly line.
Here’s a report on the Brussels terrorist attack:
While it appears that this latest emergency was not terror related, it is clear that people across the world are on high alert after yesterday’s attack in Brussels.
