Safety first.....safety first....even in an evacuation I would hope.

A poster mentions "dedicated emergency exits" which of course exist & available but very easy to mention from an armchair but those entail eight(8) flights of stairs from Terminal level to the undercroft believe it or not.....(I have used them often enough both ways for attempted fitness & when the staff lifts were out of action when traversing around the terminal)....& with the sheer volume of people aged from babes in arms to varying degrees of incapacity/infirmity & even with NO panic & NO smoke in those wells I know which decision I would make for them & which the professionals rightly took.

For the aviator posting above you WOULD NOT have been denied access to STN in extremis.
