A superb response by the British Transport Police

A man was arrested at the station for claiming to have a bomb in his bag … on the anniversary of 9/11. The 45-year-old was travelling on the 6.58pm Cannon Street service into the station when he pulled the emergency cord. The station was immediately evacuated, leading to chaos across the network.
