The tube station at London's King's Cross was evacuated this evening.
King's Cross St Pancras tube station was evacuated over a "fire alert" and no trains were stopping at the station.
Anyone know why they’re shutting down @TfL King’s Cross station? Staff are kicking everyone out and saying it’s an emergency— Kelvin Chan (@chanman) March 5, 2019
Transport for London (TfL) tweeted that the station was closed at about 9.45pm while they investigated.
