Controlled explosion at North Greenwich yesterday

21 October 2016

TSSA 10am Update Following the Controlled Explosion at Greenwich North

General Secretary Manuel Cortes said:

"It appears London Underground are stepping up their efforts to reassure staff. We very much welcome this. However, details of what actually happened yesterday are incredibly sketchy. That's why we are calling for a security summit involving our union elected representatives, the British Transport Police, the Metropolitan Police, the Transport Commissioner, the Mayor's Office and senior London Underground Management. This is the procedure followed after the terrible terror attacks on 7/7 and the tragic shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes and our members wish to stick to this tried and tested security format."
