Ruptured Gas Cylinder Halts Victoria Trains
Monday 16th June 2014
Trains services in and out of Victoria Station were brought to a standstill after a suspected gas leak in Battersea.
Met Police had told LBC they were investigating a suspected unexploded Second World War bomb in the grounds of Battersea Power Station.
However the Fire Brigade told us they are dealing with a leaking gas cylindor in the Battersea area.
