Breaking: Explosion At London Tube Station Leaves Commuters Injured

An explosion has occurred on a Tube train at Parsons Green, London, leaving “lots injured”, according to witnesses at the scene.

The explosion occurred on a Tube train at Parsons Green station this morning.

Witnesses said victims suffered facial injuries after a white cannister exploded.

One witness said there were “lots” of people injured after the explosion and a subsequent stampede.

She said on Twitter: “I’m safe – just had to run for my life at #ParsonsGreen station – huge stampede, lots injured. Not sure why – fire/explosion mentioned.”

Police confirmed they are investigating an “incident”.

A photo shared on social media appears to show the object which exploded on the train this morning.

It appears to be a white, bucket-type container contained in a Lidl bag.

The photo showed the container still burning with passengers’ bags scattered across the carriage.

One witness said several people had been injured in a stampede following the explosion.

He said the train was “absolutely packed” when the incident occurred.

He said he spoke to a woman who said she saw “a bag, a flash and a bang”.

There was “a bit of a crush on the stairs” as people tried to exit the station, he said.

One photo at the scene showed a woman sat on the pavement being treated by a responder.

Shocked commuters took to Twitter to describe the scene.

One said: “What the f**k is happening at Parsons Green – never been so scared – can we get an announcement???”

Another said: “Horror on District Line at Parsons Green due to explosion / fire on train.

“People struggling to get out of the station.”

A third said: “What’s happening at Parsons Green, panic on the platform reports of fire or explosion in a bag. No announcements.”

Transport for London said: “We are investigating an incident at Parsons Green. Customers travelling btn Wimbledon & Earl’s Court are advised to use alternative routes.”

London Ambulance said: “We are on scene alongside @metpoliceuk at #ParsonsGreen. More information to follow.”

A hazardous material team has been dispatched to the scene.
