Last weekend, some bright spark thought it would be a jolly good idea to conduct a mock one-under in order to practise staff response to such an incident. The only problem was ... They didn't bother telling the station staff that it was a drill!
The staff at Kentish Town thought it was a genuine person-under-a-train incident and did what they needed to do, including evacuating the station. It was only when they got through to the controller's emergency number on the second attempt (!) that they were told the truth.
What a disgrace. A one-under is a serious and traumatic incident that all of us are trained to deal with but hope not to have to. Playing fast and loose with staff morale like that is appalling. The station staff are owed an apology at the very least - and we should all get an assurance that this won't happen again.
