Southeastern train fire at Mottingham

A fire started on a Southeastern train this evening round Mottingham station.

It’s believed the fire started in a toilet causing all passengers to leave the train at Mottingham. Vandalism is suspected.



It’s been a day of train related incidents. Firstly a taser was drawn by police on a man armed with a knife at Dartford station, then a Crossrail train somehow opened doors onto live running tracks this evening.
