King’s Cross St Pancras station was evacuated this morning due to dangerous overcrowding.
Commuters were ordered to vacate the station and trains were not stopping at platforms.
According to a Transport for London (TfL) spokesperson, a broken down Northern Line train was responsible for the chaos.
Also, two delayed and “very full” Intercity services arrived at the same time delivering a lot of passengers into the Tube station.
A TfL spokesman said:”It was a combination of those things all at once. We would like to apologise to any customers affected”.
The station reopened about 20 minutes after closing.
