London, United Kingdom of Great Britain
EMERGENCY SERVICE PERSONNEL TAKE PART IN A MOCK CHEMICAL ATTACK IN BANK
TUBE IN LONDON.
British medical personnel tend to a "casualty" in a mock chemical attack at
Bank underground station in central London, September 7, 2003. The exercise,
which does not involve members of the public or real chemicals and is
designed to test London's ability to cope with a terror attack, began at
1148 BST (British Summer Time) on Sunday and is designed to test the
response of the police, ambulance and fire services to such an incident. The
scenario being acted out is that a chemical is released on a busy train
travelling from Waterloo to Bank station in the heart of the City of London.
