I came past the station at 7:45 after having to walk from Motspur Park station. Seemed fine to me. Taxi's and buses waiting as normal. A suspect package in Worcester Park station ??? More likely to have flytippers than *****s.
I was shocked to see police outside my house stopping cars from going up the highstreet as a nosey person i am, i had a little wonder up there. the police had cornered the whole station off and stopped any trains from stopping there (nice walk for people from stoneleigh then) a policeman then informed me that a suspicious package has been left on a bus and that they were waiting on Special police to come down and check it out. by 8:45 every thing was back to normal so i am quessing WP is safe for another day.
I'd just like to make it very clear, this was nothing to do with my son, he left his suspect package in my loo !
I understand there were problems at the station last night too as my other half got stuck at Motspur Park for 30 mins whilst the police were removing passengers from a train at Worcester Park station. He said there were 3 British Transport Policemen there this evening when he got off the train. What's going on at WP????
There was indeed a problem with youths on a train at Worcester Park last night. It was already running late from Waterloo... but then the police were called to Worcester Park to eject the troublesome youths. It didnt cause a problem for other trains.
Still not sure what went on, but we did see the police arrest someone- he was led away with handcuffs on.
Good, they need to clear those scum bag kids off the train. After a hard day at work in the city I don't want to be intimidated and hassled by these wastrels. It's bad enough having to walk past the bench on the dark corner of Green Lane to get back home.
