    Meanwhile, this is making headline news too...what on earth is going on in the world?!!!

    Passengers forced open the doors on a busy rush-hour train and climbed on to tracks after becoming "panicked" in the carriage.

    It happened outside Wimbledon station in south-west London at 08:30 BST as a man apparently began reading lines aloud from the Bible.

    Commuters became scared when the man began quoting phrases such as, "death is not the end", a passenger said.

    Rail power lines were cut as passengers "self-evacuated", police said.

    Trains through the area were expected to remain disrupted until 17:00 BST.


    Ian, who was on the train, said the man's Bible-reading led to a "commotion" and a "crush".

    He said someone then asked the man to stop speaking "as he was scaring people" and "the guy stopped and stood there with his head down".

    To be fair... Nothing is more terrifying than the Bible read aloud.

    It happens in the village where I live every Saturday. Mervyn on one side of the street beside the credit union, taking victims, and his fellow bible singers on the other side beside the old bank.

    It was just a clever way of getting rid of people to get a seat on a rush hour train in London.
