Armed police swooped on a coach on the M6 Toll motorway in the West Midlands.

A police source told BBC Radio WM a passenger was seen pouring a liquid into a box, which then started smoking.

The 48 passengers on the Megabus Preston to London service were led off the coach and forced to sit apart in a cordon on the opposite carriageway.

Police said a report of vapour escaping from a bag which led to the security alert was caused by "a health improvement aid for smokers".

My better half was caught in the traffic right behind this. She wasn't happy!

 

Probably the first jam the M6 Toll has ever seen!

:roll:good dry run rehearsal opportunity with the olympics comming up

 

on the job traning me being cynical

 

why the decontamination tents when an "NBC bomb bin" would be sufficient

 

after all, army ammunition technical officers were on scene to appraise the situation

it just seems the amount of men and materials that were put into place before a threat had been confirmed and identified seems a little strange

Would rather see an overreaction than an underreaction.

 

But, yeah, have to agree with what you're saying in the main!

ditto. imagine the uproar if it was something for real and they weren't prepared on scene to cover any eventuality immediately! may not even have been an overreaction in the circumstances. std procedure no doubt in the circumstances. but, either way, they can't win; criticism if over, criticism if under!
