CCTV Security UK is essential in protecting our public spaces and transport services across Great Britiain.
Recently London Euston station in North London, came under attack on 29th August 2017 when an e-cigarette exploded in a bag, which was found in a bin at the station was thought to be a bomb.
Around 7.40pm Virgin trains blocked all lines due to a raised security alert. The public were evacuated from the station and trains were halted whilst the police and the bomb squad surrounded the scene.
The tube trains could not stop at the station and the whole area was closed for over one hour. The British Transport Police later confirmed that “no one was hurt” and that “the incident is ongoing investigation”.
Earlier that same day at around 5.55pm, John Lennon Airport in Liverpool also raised a security alert when a suspicious package was discovered and the army bomb disposal team were called to the scene. The public were evacuated from the airport and stationary planes we forced to hold passengers on board whilst the team made the area safe. Later a man was detained at the airport whilst experts investigated his equipment described as a “battery pack of unique appearance”.
CCTV security UK has never been so important to private companies and organisations who provide transport services and areas for public use. As the UK continues to be on high alert due to several militant attacks throughout 2017 it is important that businesses stay protected for those who use their premises.
