Fire causes delays and station closure at St James’s Park


St James’s Park Tube station was evacuated this morning due to a trackside fire.

Fire crews were called to the scene around 8am to deal with what a spokesman described as a “small trackside fire”.


Ambulance responder vehicles and police cars were also on the scene.

It is not clear yet whether there were any casualties or when the station will be open again.

We’ll bring you more as we have it.
