British Transport Police are looking into an incident at Euston Station which has been evacuated amid reports of an “emergency alert” at the central London hub
Euston Station has been evacuated with commuters facing travel chaos ahead of rush hour in central London.
British Transport Police confirmed they were looking into an incident at the busy station amid reports of an “emergency alert”.
A spokesperson said: “British Transport Police received a report at 2.46pm today of the fire alarm sounding at Euston Underground station.
“The station was closed as a precaution while London Fire Brigade investigated. Nothing was found and the station has now re-opened.”
Passengers just one stop away from Euston were warned that the “station is currently closed” while traveling on the underground.
Others took to Twitter to check on loved ones during the 30 minute evacuation on Thursday.
“Anyone know what happened at Euston Station my little brother just called me saying he’s been evacuated?” one person said.
“One tube stop away from arriving at Euston. Announcement “Euston station is currently closed.” Always something with this place,” another added.
Transport for London confirmed that the station reopened at approximately 3.15pm in time for the evening rush hour.
A spokesperson said: “The station and platforms were evacuated this afternoon but all has reopened again now.”
Meanwhile, the West Coast Main Line will be closed between London Euston and Milton Keynes for four days from Good Friday due to upgrades of the existing line and HS2 work.
Rail passengers have also been warned of delays as Network Rail carries out 530 engineering projects costing a total of £83 million.
Parts of the railway between Birmingham International station and Coventry will also be closed, as will lines around Crewe station.
