Mobile phone charger ignites on London Underground train, forces Tower Hill evacuation

Police have evacuated Tower Hill tube station amid reports of a ‘minor explosion’ in a train carriage, thought to have been caused by an overheated mobile phone charger. The incident is not being treated as suspicious.

Officers have since confirmed that a flaming package seen in pictures posted online was in fact a faulty mobile phone charger.

Some of those on the platform at the time of the incident said they saw the charger “hissing and smoking” in the carriage.
