Ter­ror alerts hit two east Lon­don trans­port hubs

The Wharf - - Wharf -

The spec­tre of ter­ror­ism hung over east Lon­don in the past seven days as first the Ju­bilee line at North

Green­wich and then Lon­don City Air­port were evac­u­ated over sus­pi­cious de­vices.

Those head­ing to the Nick­el­back con­cert at The O2 were forced to find al­ter­na­tive routes as a con­trolled ex­plo­sion de­stroyed a “vi­able” im­pro­vised de­vice while two were hos­pi­talised as the air­port ter­mi­nal build­ing was cleared in a chem­i­cal in­ci­dent that turned out to be CS gas spray.
