Bomb scare at London’s Euston station
London’s  Euston station: bomb scare on Tuesday night

British police evacuated London’s Euston station on Tuesday after a small explosion, most probably caused by an e-cigarette in a bag, prompted a lock-down and sent dozens of armed officers racing to the scene.

Britain is on high alert after a series of militant attacks in London and Manchester this year that have killed 36 people.

Earlier on Tuesday, Liverpool airport was evacuated and passengers kept on their planes while a bomb disposal team dealt with a suspicious package. It soon returned to “business as usual”, a spokesman said.

At Euston, one of London’s busiest train stations, people were seen on clips on social media running out of the building.

“Officers are currently at Euston station responding to a security alert,” the British Transport Police said in a statement.

“We are investigating but there appears to have been a small contained explosion which is believed to have been caused by an e-cigarette which was in a bag at the station. No one is believed to have been injured.”

It said the station should open shortly but there may be delays after officers with search dogs checked that the area was safe.
