London Underground runaway train excitement
You've got to love the London Underground. Dirty, hot, expensive, in a constant state of disrepair and dogged by frequent delays, it's one of the worst examples in the world - and now its letting trains roll about the tracks of their own free will just before rush hour begins.
A driverless runaway train managed to travel four miles through the London Underground this morning. The engineering train became uncoupled on the Northern line near Warren Street and trundled along the track until it eventually stopped.
According to the BBC, the train was being towed shortly before 7am this morning when it uncoupled under central London. Unsurprisingly, a full investigation has been launched although a runaway train without a driver posed no safety risk whatsoever according to TfL.
