England fans sneak in to team hotel
Three England fans have snuck into the team hotel after telling the security they needed the toilet.
Andy Richardson, 22, Alex Hill, 20, and Josh Pearce, 19, blagged their way into the hotel and proceeded to drink beer take selfies with the players. Afterwards the boys walked right out of the front door.
‘There was armed police everywhere so we sun bathed on the beach for three hours. Then we thought ‘f**k it’ we are going in. There were 20 armed police and I hopped towards them saying I needed the toilet. They fell for the trick and suddenly we were in. Roy Hodgson was there so we started off getting a photo with him. Within the next three or four hours we got pictures with most the squad. We ended up having six beers and a club sandwich as we did it. We walked out the hotel and the Brazilian kids started shouting and running’ Andy from Worcester told.
Are these boys delinquents or legends? I know what I think..
Rail delays after security alert at London Victoria
Thousands of commuters face major delays after Victoria Station was evacuated after reports of a suspicious package.
The item, which was originally rumoured to be an exploded bomb from World War Two was later found to be a mere camping gas cylinder.
A Network Rail spokesman has said that the station has re-opened but delays are still likely for several hours.
The London Fire Brigade tweeted: ‘Firefighters were in attendance at an incident in #Victoria but @metpoliceuk have declared the area safe & we are leaving the scene.’
A British Transport Police spokesman said: “Officers were called to London Victoria mainline station at 10.36am after the discovery of what was believed to be a suspicious item at a site near the station. The device was discovered by maintenance workers at the site on Vauxhall Bridge Road and a police cordon was established around the surrounding area to allow emergency services to carry out an investigation. BTP officers attended alongside colleagues from the Metropolitan Police Service and discovered the item in question was a camping gas cylinder. Some trains were briefly delayed and cancelled at Victoria while the investigation was carried out, and the incident was resolved at 11.07am.”
