    M6 toll coach terror scare caused by vapour from electronic cigarette

    Stupid British society ruled by fear. I love how they have the public sat in the grid treat like possible terrorists. Get used to it as it is only going to get worse!
    _____________

    Armed police surround a coach in Staffordshire on the M6 toll road, after a passenger was seen pouring liquid into a box which started smoking, but was later reported as e-cigarette vapour. Link to this video

    The evacuation of a coach on the M6 toll road which caused long tailbacks on one of the country's busiest roads was a terror scare caused by the smoke vapour from an electronic cigarette, police have revealed.

    Staffordshire police led an operation to evacuate almost 50 people from a Megabus coach heading south on the M6 toll road in the West Midlands on Thursday morning. There were reports that a passenger on board was seen pouring liquid into a bag which created smoke or fumes, causing others onboard to alert the driver. But the smoke came from an electronic cigarette, it was later revealed.

    The terror alert, which saw armed police officers and dozens of emergency service vehicles deployed to the motorway near Lichfield, was caused by a "health improvement aid for smokers", police said.

    Armed officers responded to a "genuine security alert" from a concerned member of the public on board the coach travelling from Preston to London, according to Staffordshire police.

    "The information received concerned a report of vapour escaping from a bag which on investigation turned out to be a health improvement aid for smokers," a force spokeswoman said.

    Sad reflection of a world that used to get by with a World War every 20 years or so!

    More to do with the daft bastard police force who love to demonstrate their power by closing roads for the day ,, the bigger the closure the bigger the police erection.

    Earlier that day CO> " Right lads get you iPads,, holiday memoirs ,, golf clubs etc were gonna get 6 mini bus crews up on the M6 for a day out ,, no need for any money we'll organise an out side catering unit to come and supply all the food you can eat "

    " Whats that ? some northern monkey admitted trying to smoke a fake fag on the bus ?? na best we go and check it out properly and cause mayhem for the day , because we can "
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    My son sent me the link to this yesterday.

    Did you see the amount of Police that came out for it ?

    They arrested 6 terrorists in London yesterday too

    But that is some Police force, makes these Thais look like a bunch of part time cowboys



    A MUSLIM convert who told of his hatred for Britain in a TV documentary was among six terror suspects held by cops yesterday.

    Former BBC security guard Richard Dart, 29, who now calls himself Salahuddin, was arrested in the street by counter terror officers.

    A 21-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were held at a nearby home in Ealing, West London. And in Stratford, East London, former community cop Jahangir Alom, 26, was held along with his brothers Mohamed Alomgir, 24, and Moybur Alom, 18. Smoke grenades were used in the raid and a man was tasered.

    Moron. If it says No Smoking on the bus it means NO Smoking. No cigarettes, no electronic cigarettes, no anything that remotely resembles smoking.

    That being said the label British, French even Norwegian doesn't mean the person in question looked like they were born and raised in Tunbridge Wells. His looks and demeanor could well have been Mustafa Fag.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.

    And should there have been an explosive device and the police not responded this way todays postings on TD about this incident would be ????
    We have had a few bombs on buses.

    Six suspected terrorist arrested earlier that day by the same police force, its seems a perfectly reasonable response by the police to me.
    An alert member of the public called it, it was a false alarm, ok, good exercise.

    As for British society ruled by fear, nonsense. The Brits have been through a few nasty bombing incidents over last 30-40- years, it has never stopped them going about their daily business.

    Bower, I don't have a problem with them shitting bricks about things.

    As Jimmy Carr said: "There's been a huge amount of planning gone into the London Olympics. Unfortunately, most of it has been by Al Qaeda".

    What a moron. Eciggarettes give out vapour, not smoke. The poor sod probably felt the need to hide it due to over sensitive arseholes like you. who would squeal, SMOKER, quick lynch him.

    Go and educate yourself you tool.

    They've only recently arrested 6 suspects with bomb making materials and firearms, and it was coming up to the anniversary of the London bombings (today), so I doubt anyone is going to complain.

    Seriously, any one of ours that converts and turns traitor should be hung, drawn, and quartered for treason, just like the good old days. I just can't think of anything worse than what Americans call a "race traitor". If a threat is going to come from anywhere, it's going to come from traitor under the instruction of an immigrant or asylum seeker.

    Still laughing!! cant green ya. some great comments on here. Toll roads on the M6, last time I drove (crawled) that spot it resembled a turnpike road from the 1760/s

    From the SUn about arresting the convert to Islam Brit hater.

    A CINEMA worker dressed as BATMAN was quizzed by anti-terror cops after handing leaflets to crowds waiting to see the Olympic torch.

    Three officers swooped as he dished out fliers for the new caped crusader film in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwicks. The worker, who didn’t want to be named, said: “It was over the top.”

    Police feared he might be a protester.

    - A GUNMAN ambushed by armed officers and a police helicopter near a primary school in Marlborough, Wilts, turned out to be a 71-year-old pensioner hunting rats with an air rifle.

    Bloody hell I hope some poor sod does not fart during the National Anthem he will be taken out for a germ warfare attack. What a sad world we live in, we have lost the plot completely.

    Got a link to the legislation outlining the defining rule that no smoking means both Cigarettes and E-Cigarettes ?
