LONDON (Reuters) - London’s King’s Cross St Pancras and Euston underground stations were evacuated on Friday after a faulty train triggered a fire alert, transport police said.

“The fire alert was caused by a faulty train. No cause for concern,” a British Transport Police spokeswoman said, adding that the stations would be reopened as soon as possible.
