Reports of an adverse incident at Derry’s train station this morning (Sunday, August 17, 2014) proved to be a false alarm.

Members of the public had contacted the Derry Journal to say that it appeared that a train seemeed to have jammed along the platform at the station.

However, whilst several fire appliances were at the station it was later confirmed that in fact the fire service was conducting a safety drill.
