Multiple people injured after London train station explosion

Scene at Southgate tube station

Paramedics have treated three people at the scene and two were taken to hospital for their injuries.

Police have been called to reports of an explosion at a London Tube station.

"Southgate Tube station is now closed whilst officers respond", tweeted the British Transport Police.

British Transport Police tweeted that officers are responding to a "suspicious package".

An earlier statement from the force said: "Met officers are dealing with a suspicious package at #Southgate tube station".

'We are not aware of any serious injury'.

Trump to approve tariffs on US$50 billion in Chinese goods
Specifically, Beijing makes USA companies that want to do business in China jump through more hoops than domestic companies. Earlier today China's foreign ministry said it would hit back Donald Trump's plans to plaster tariffs on its imports.

Local reports suggest that one person was taken out of the station on a stretcher.

A Twitter user with the handle @nakzokulah posted: "I was at Southgate Station when this commotion started".

The Metropolitan Police said officers remained on the scene and were investigating.

According to the Guardian, the police services investigating the inciden included Scotland Yard's counter terrorism command.

Police later said the security scare was not believed to be terror related.

Police were called to the station over reports of an explosion and people running a little after 7 p.m. on Tuesday evening. It appears at this stage that the cause of the explosion was a battery short circuit.
