The incident happened just before 6 p.m. on Thursday when alarms went off at King's Cross station, followed by announcements that urged passengers to "leave the station immediately" due to an "emergency".

The announcement provided no further details but, according to Transport for London, King's Cross St. Pancras tube station has been closed to repair faulty escalators. It is unknown when the busy station will reopen to customers.

Photos and videos from the station showed hundreds of people heading towards the exit.

The Euston tube station has also been closed and evacuated as a result of overcrowding. "Euston station remains closed. Trains are now not stopping at the station," Transport for London said in an update.

We're working to gather more information.
