There was a serious incident at Abbey Wood station late last Saturday evening. The Police Neighbourhood Team Tweeted about it, so did Southeastern Railway and it popped up on my PC's screen alert at about the same time.
I had expected a report to appear on The News Shopper’s website on Sunday morning but it did not.
Not only was there no news but the police Tweet disappeared and Teresa Pearce MP who confirmed she had seen that Tweet knew no more about the incident.
I feared it might be a Crossrail related accident as they were due to take over the line an hour or so later, but the men on site knew nothing about it next morning.
It took until midday today for the News Shopper to carry a report and it says no more than Southeastern’s Tweet.
There has been one report that there was a fatality but why a news blackout so total that the police withdrew their Tweets and the News Shopper has had to create a story out of nothing?
Been there, done that!
