    Trains are once again stopping at Brussels’ Gare du Nord, after a bomb alert brought rail traffic to a standstill in the railway station for over an hour on Monday afternoon.

    At around 16:00, national rail company SNCB announced train traffic had resumed normally in the station.

    Around an hour prior, the SNCB had announced on Twitter that no trains were going through or serving the station, located to the north of the city, following a bomb alert.

    According to the rail company’s Twitter account, service has now resumed normally, with trains stopping and going through the station.

    No details were given about the bomb alert by the company.
