London Heathrow Terminal 5 has been evacuated following a fire alarm that triggered an evacuation of parts of the airport and delays to rail services
London Heathrow Airport has been evacuated following a fire alarm going off.
The alarm went off at Terminal 5 at the airport, stopping all services on the Heathrow Express and other transport stopping there.
Travellers to the airport were caught in the midst of the chaos as it sounded.
The alarm sounded shortly before 10am this morning leading to an ’emergency’ evacuation of the train station at the terminal and the Elizabeth Line.
One traveller, who had just returned from a week abroad on business on a nine-hour flight, complained that after being directed out the station, they were abandoned by staff.
The Heathrow Express confirmed services were “part suspended” due to the fire alarm that meant no trains would stop at the station until further notice.
The new Elizabeth Line was also evacuated at the Terminal, with passengers take off the carriages and line and removed from the station.
