Rob Cottingham said the station was on “lockdown” while Drew Liqerman reported crowds of people “screaming” as they fled.

British Transport Police were called to the scene just after 6pm and later tweeted: “Euston Station was evacuated following a security alert.

“Officers have checked everything out. Nothing suspicious. Station has reopened.”

The incident comes just hours after a car struck pedestrians outside the Natural History Museum and injured 11.
