Tube passengers led down Jubilee Line after train fault

Hundreds of Tube passengers have been led down a tunnel on the Jubilee Line after a train broke down near St John's Wood, in north-west London.

The train stopped at about 17:35 GMT causing severe rush-hour delays on the line.

On Twitter, one passenger commented: "700 people being evacuated down track. Epic Jubilee Line fail."

Transport for London has apologised and said: "We will be refunding those affected."

Nigel Holness, London Underground Operations Director, said: "I apologise to customers whose journeys have been disrupted by this evening's problems on the Jubilee line.

"This was caused by a faulty train between Baker Street and St Johns Wood which has led to the suspension of the line between London Bridge and Finchley Road.

"This is clearly not the level of service they have a right to expect."
