A “small contained explosion” thought to have been triggered by an e-cigarette in a purse compelled London Euston station to be evacuated on Tuesday night.
The station was vacated at approximately 7.40 pm caused by an “security alert”.
There were statements that a “smoking package” had been discovered on one of the platforms.
British Transport Police said no one had been hurt by the blast.
The station had carried on by 9.10 pm but Network Rail cautioned there would be “significant delays until the end of service”.
A British Transport Police representative said police officers and search dogs inspected the station making sure the area was secure well before the station was reopened.
” There appears to have been a small contained explosion which is believed to have been caused by an e-cigarette which was in a bag at the station,” the force said.
” No one is believed to have been injured.”
