Need for electrical courses emphasised by London explosion

An explosion that occurred at an Oxford Street branch of Foot Locker in London has reaffirmed the need for professionals to complete quality electrical courses before carrying out work in shops.

The blast caused Bond Street underground station to be closed for 50 minutes after the electrical fault took place at about 20:00 BST.

Police confirmed that it is not being treated as a terrorist incident and is being put down to an issue with the electrical system.

The Metropolitan Police stated: "Police were called to reports of an electrical fault having caused an explosion at the Foot Locker retail store… It is believed that there are no persons injured."

EDF Energy and London Fire Brigade are investigating the event, which emphasises the severity of the event and suggests that professionals should take necessary electrical courses to avoid accidents in the workplace.

It was reported that nine fire crews were called to the area when the incident occurred and the road between Bond Street and Oxford Street was closed to vehicles.
