A major exercise simulating a terrorist strike on London Underground is to take place next month, the Government has announced.

The long-awaited drill was expected to test the emergency services on their reaction to a hypothetical chemical or biological attack on the Tube, with mass evacuations and decontaminations.

It will be staged at Bank station in the City of London on Sunday, September 7.
The area around the station is expected to be turned into a “ghost town” for the exercise, which was first announced by Home Secretary David Blunkett in March but was postponed due to the Iraq war.

“An exercise will be held at Bank Underground station on Sunday, September 7 to allow London’s emergency and health services to practise their response to a terrorist attack on the Tube,” said a Department of Transport spokeswoman.
