One thing that always worries me travelling on London’s tube network, is the lack of fire extinguishers.
I believe they were removed to stop people ‘playing’ and setting them off in the carriages when there wasn’t a fire.
However, if I’m ever unfortunate to be stuck underground in a blazing carriage the last thing i’d want to find is that the train had no extinguishers incase people ‘played’ with them. I’d be more concerned with trying to put the fire out of escape alive with other passengers.
Surely it’s best to put up with a bit of mess if it can help save a few lives.
This photo shows where the extinguisher should be on my current Central Line train.
