She was hit by a southbound train on a Victoria line platform and was treated at the scene.

Hundreds of people were told to find another route for their journey after staff cleared the station, which also has Piccadilly line platforms, at about 9.10am with alarms blaring out into the street.

The Victoria line was suspended between Seven Sisters and King’s Cross St Pancras, and ran with severe delays on the rest of the line.

The station fully reopened at about 11.10am.
