London’s Charing Cross Station has now reopened after it was closed temporarily following a fire which broke out on one of the trains.
One of the carriages on the underground platform six burst into flames. The station was subsequently evacuated and there are no injuries according to the London Fire Brigade.
An electrical fault is believed to be to blame for the blaze.
One passenger managed to capture the dramatic scenes on his phone.
