London's Bank and Monument Tube stations were evacuated at around 6.45pm.

Witnesses heard alarms and Transport For London employees "screaming" at passengers to exit the station immediately.

Commuters took to Twitter to warn Londoners to steer clear of the busy station.

I didn't know if it was a big deal or not. I figured you would let us know if we need to get excited since its happening on your side of the pond.

Can't be as bad as DC subway, that thing catches fire a couple times a day. Someone died from smoke inhalation awhile back. Now they have parts of it shut down making repairs. I don't think any subway system is brand new anymore. DC subway is 60+ years old. Something that old is bound to have problems. Hopefully no one was hurt. I wonder how old London subway is???
