12th September 2014

London Bridge railway station was brought to a standstill on Thursday evening as a man was arrested after claiming to have a bomb in his luggage. 

The 45-year-old man pulled the emergency cord and made his bogus claim aboard the 6:58pm Canon Street service, which had just pulled in to London Bridge. 

Parts of the station were evacuated around 7:00pm as witnesses reported a heavy police presence over social media. 

British Transport Police kept commuters informed via their Twitter account throughout the evening. 

Their final tweet regarding the incident, said: “A case belonging to a man arrested at London Bridge has been deemed safe after he pulled a train's emergency cord and claimed to have a bomb.”
