My sources in Forest Hill tell me there's a bomb scare at the station. Area cordoned off, lots of police and emergency service vehicles. But people don't seem to be being evacuated.

Thanks Liz , your secret sources are certainly secret ( guess that is what you would expect ).
Main thing no bomb.

It was all started when a package in the Post office started making a beeping noise, thats not a joke by the way, a Police officer at the scene told me.

I could tell you a story about my electric toothbrush going off in my suitcase after check in at Stansted but it is so predictable that I won't...

How dumb is this? yesterday about 1pm I needed to get a train from Forest Hill to London Bridge to go to a meeting. Arriving at the underpass to find it taped off, I went up the steps to the down platform (the gate was open), and over the footbridge, to be met by two blokes with yellow jackets who informed me the station was closed and I'd have to leave, as there was a 'suspect package outside'. But instead of sending me back over the footbridge, they ushered me into the station buildling, where a man unlocked the outside door and ushered me out right into the middle of the cordoned off area - towards the suspect package!
I hadn't objected as it all happened so fast and I was thinking I'd get a bus (which of course, was not possible). Of course, I then had policemen shouting at me to get out of the area, and was ushered into Dartmouth road, from whence I couldn't get home to Perry Vale area except via the footbridge by the German church.

I'm so glad it wasn't a bomb, as by the brilliant thinking of the railway staff I ended in the middle of it all! Its nice to find out what really happened! Brenda
