Hundreds of commuters were disrupted this morning after a false alarm caused Highbury & Islington Station to be evacuated.

London Fire Brigade was called at 8.57am, and a huge crowd of commuters were forced to gather outside the station.

However, it was judged to be a false alarm and the station has now been reopened.

Fire crews left at 9.10am. Disruption to services was expected to end at around 9.30am.
