Abandoned Car Causes Bank of England Bomb Scare
Thursday 15th May 2014
A security alert was triggered after a car was abandoned in the middle of the road near the Bank of England.
Witnesses described seeing it go through a red light before being left in the middle of the intersection next to Bank station.
Workers in nearby buildings were told to stay away from windows with @adelearmstron11 describing on Twitter being sent to wait in the basement.
The area was cordoned off and a robot sent in to investigate.
It caused travel issues in the area, with the road closed, the Central line not stopping there and the Waterloo & City line suspended.
