Euston station is evacuated during Friday rush hour as fire engines rush to the scene
- London Euston station evacuated after a fire alarm went off earlier today
- The underground is not stopping at Euston but has not been affected otherwise
- Outbound trains up until 20.40 departure time currently showing as delayed
Euston Station was evacuated this evening during Friday rush hour as a fire engine rushed to the scene.
Hundreds of disgruntled commuters were forced to leave the station during Friday rush hour after a ‘fire alarm went off’.
Future departures, up until 20:40, appear to be delayed after the false alarm.
A spokeswoman for the London Fire Brigade told MailOnline that the evacuation was routine for reports of a fire alarm.
The issue came from Network Rail rather than TFL, a TFL spokeswoman said.
‘The underground is still running but it’s not stopping at Euston,’ she added.
Images and videos from the scene show masses of fed up commuters looking at the departure boards outside the station.
One Twitter user said: ‘appears #euston n station has been evacuated due to a fire, probably long delays and cancelled trains till tomorrow, take sandwiches and a flask.’
Another blamed the date today on the bad luck on the way home: ‘Stuck on a train outside Euston. Serves me right for having the audacity to book a train on Friday 13th.’
