London King’s Cross station was evacuated on Friday afternoon after a fire alarm was activated.
Officers from British Transport Police, the London Fire Brigade and the Met were called to the scene as commuters were ushered outside.
Great start to weekend. Fire at #KingsCross. Organised British chaos with stoical charm & gritted teeth. That's just the staff.— JP Morrison (@JPAMDG) May 22, 2015
Crowds outside Kings Cross London. Evacuated. Fire alarms going off inside. But no smoke. And trains still arriving. pic.twitter.com/sItyRKCBM9— Matthew Price (@BBCMatthewPrice) May 22, 2015
