I'm way out in Lai chi kok, pretty deep into kowloon on the red line. And all day there have been two mtr Yello uniform staff standing a few feet inside the mtr entrance (where u swipe your octopus).
They are watching everyone entering.
It's really weird, never seen this before in the Last 9 years at this station.
There have been calls for people to disrupt the MTR system. Some people have spotted a bigger than usual police and MTR staff presence at Kowloon Tong & Admiralty today. It's been like this for the last week or so at my station to be honest.
I get Admiralty for sure, but just thought it was weird, 7 stops before Admiralty they would be beefing up security. Kowloon tong is pretty far inland too.
