British police say a scare at a busy London train station on Tuesday night has turned out to have been caused by an electronic cigarette.
British Transport Police said in a statement that officers responded to Euston station in north London after receiving reports of an explosion there.
The station was evacuated while bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in to help search the premises.
One witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told Metro.co.uk: “I just saw hundreds of people running. I was here and then everyone just ran, it was crazy. Police were just shouting at us all to get out, I have no idea what’s happened. I’ve never seen so many people running before.”

The police statement says the investigation is ongoing, but that the small explosion “is believed to have been caused by an e-cigarette which was in a bag at the station.”
