Hundreds of commuters were evacuated from St Pancras station in central London this afternoon after a false fire alarm.
Train services to and from the station were suspended after the fire alarm rang out, with a PA announcement saying ‘this is an emergency’.
Photos shared on social media show hundreds of passengers stranded outside the station, with delays for several services.
St Pancras International said in a statement: ‘The fire alarm was triggered however this has now been cancelled. The Fire Brigade attended and there’s no fire. Customers will soon be let back into the station.
It is unclear how many passengers or journeys were affected by the false alarm but delays could last until 3pm.
Southeastern Rail said on Twitter: ‘We’ve been advised that this is due to emergency services dealing with an incident at #StPancras meaning that presently no trains can arrive or depart from the station.
‘London Underground are accepting tickets between our London Terminals to help complete your journey.’
