Panic as London Waterloo evacuated after ‘suspicious package’ found – Tubes cancelled


Transport for London (TfL) reports that there is no service from London Bridge to Green Park on the Jubilee line and that there are severe delays on the rest of the route while it responds to a security alert at Waterloo. The Waterloo and City line has also been suspended.

A spokeswoman for British Transport Police said that officers were called to Waterloo Underground station at 3.53pm today (June 15) after reports of a suspicious package.

She said: “Specialist officers are in attendance and the station has been evacuated while they assess the item.”

Twitter user Topher Palmer commented on the social media platform: “Major police presence at Waterloo Underground station. Probably best to avoid.”

Fellow Twitter user Eben Leifer tweeted that an emergency alarm has been going off at the rail hub.

It comes as Britain’s train operators started releasing information about what services they intend to run during next week’s rail strikes.

Rail workers are walking out on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Disruption is also expected on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
