Police must intervene after being caught in Ostend station


The trains could only run on two tracks again around 9.30 p.m., says Temmerman. The travelers were then able to gradually leave with different trains.

The situation led to chaos among the waiting travelers who wanted to go home, after which the police stopped letting trains leave. “We even evacuated the station together with the police,” says Temmerman.

After 10 pm, according to Tommelein, about a thousand people were still waiting in the station. He wants to consult with the federal government about extra support and an emergency plan in case of unforeseen circumstances.
