Saturday night a loud bang led to the evacuation of Old Street tube station in London. Armed police arrived at 9.20 p.m. and asked everyone to exit from the Northern Line station.
The police came into quick action after commuters reported a man is suspicious and acting suspiciously on a train.
A tweet from Northern Line immediately arrived reading, “Old Street station is closed whilst the Police carry out an investigation.”
Several people heard a bang, but no firearm or any related object was seen, said the Metropolitan police.
According to the Metropolitan police firearms officers too rushed to the station along with British Transport Police.
No injuries were reported and nothing suspicious was found. No arrests too were made.
About two weeks about two dozen people have been injured in an Improvised explosive device (IED) attack at the Parsons Green station of London Tube railway.
Newspaper reports revealed injuries included facial burns from a blast and several hurt in stampede.
A woman said she was injured in a stampede.
British Prime Minister said, “My thoughts are with those injured at Parsons Green and the emergency services who, once again, are responding swiftly and bravely to a suspected terrorist incident.”
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, “This is a challenge which we all face.”
