Passengers had to be evacuated from Birmingham International train station on Monday (June 20th) after a fire alarm went off.
The station, which serves the nearby international airport, was closed for around half an hour from 10.20am as firefighters investigated the cause of the false alarm, reports the Birmingham Mail.
A spokesperson for Virgin Trains told the news provider that it is believed the fumes from a train set off the fire alarm detection system.
“It is believed the root cause was due to fumes from a diesel train, which was not a Virgin Train, was detected downstairs in the station and set the alarms off,” he said.
“There was no major disruption, however, trains did not stop at the station while it was closed.”
