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.
