reported London Victoria Station had to be evacuated as a fire broke out on a Gatwick Express train. Fire engines were sent to the scene by the London Fire Brigade.
Southern Rail has confirmed that no one was hurt, but commuters will face long delays as no trains will be running from the station as the smoke needs to clear.
Thousands of commuters have been left stranded according to the Telegraph
. Tom Edwards, who was in the station at the time of the fire, said: ''There was just a little bit of flames by the wheels. They put it out and then started chucking everybody out of the building.
There was no panic. It could have got pretty bad if they hadn't done something about it straight away.''
The fire comes just one day after a helicopter crashed
at London's Vauxhall.
