Victoria main line station was closed for 30 minutes this morning after a fire alert.
The station had to be evacuated at 8am after reports of smoke coming from a shop. This caused major delays as the Underground station too had to be shut due to overcrowding.
Passengers should expect delays to their journey of up to 50 minus with short notice alterations & cancellations in/out of #LondonVictoria
