Bomb scare at Britomart halts trains

10:03 am on 11 September 2009

There was disruption for train commuters in Auckland on Friday morning, with a bomb scare at the Britomart transport centre.

The terminal was evacuated at about 8:45am after a call from a phone box in West Auckland.

Police say the entire site has been searched and there is no sign of a bomb.

They say the 9/11 anniversary tends to trigger such incidents.

Passenger trains heading into the city were stopped for about three-quarters of an hour, but have now resumed.
