Eight safety breaches

28 May 2019

An enforcement notice has been handed to London Bridge tube station after fire safety breaches were found in an assessment by London Fire Brigade (LFB).

Violations included failure to provide suitable fire warning methods, failure to review fire risk assessment, failure to provide employees with 'relevant information and failure to provide 'adequate and clearly indicated' emergency routes that lead to a place of safety.

The breaches covered eight articles of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. 

Transport for London (TfL) commented on the notice, claiming safety was a 'top priority' and they would be addressing all the issues outlined by LFB. 

"Safety is always our top priority, and we work closely with London Fire Brigade to ensure that our stations are safe for our customers and staff," a TfL spokesman said.

"We have met with them to discuss the issues that they identified and have taken urgent steps to address all of them."

TfL have until 5 June to comply with the measures set out in the notice.
