Two hundred passengers were told to leave the train, which remains on the platform, and the station was cleared of people.

"Police received information from a member of the public about alleged suspicious activity in the tilt train," a police spokeswoman said.

A Department of Transport spokeswoman confirmed the incident was a bomb threat. The station has been closed until further notice with rail services not expected to resume until 3pm.
