Armed police, forensic investigators and other military officials were beckoned to the scene of a ‘potential terrorist threat’. A male seen pouring suspicious liquid into a box which then began ‘smoking’ was reported, which caused a whole heap of attention to a particular coach travelling from Preston to London.
Passengers aboard the ‘MegaBus’, were escorted off the coach and made to sit in lines with supervision from armed police units whilst sniffer dogs explored luggage for evidence.
Verdict – A hasty reaction to a costly possibility. I am impressed with our reaction to such an event and feel that minutest bit safer for the forthcoming Olympics. Kudos English police and military, well done.
