London: One of the busiest stations on London's subway system was evacuated on Friday morning after a train carriage filled with smoke.

London Fire Brigade said crews were investigating "smoke issuing at platform level" at Oxford Circus station.

Passenger Tom Singer tweeted a photograph of smoke filling a carriage of a Bakerloo Line train at the station. Another photo posted by Joe Bunting showed passengers in a smoky subway car covering their mouths and noses.

Passengers say staff ordered everyone to leave just before 9 am (0800GMT) today. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
