The Prime Minister, Theresa May, will chair a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra committee at 1pm. United Kingdom authorities say they are treating the incident as a terrorist incident.

The London Ambulance Service said none of the victims "are thought to be in a serious or life-threatening condition". "A fireball" and a "wall of flame" went through the train, witnesses say.

"Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for CT policing, has declared it a terrorist incident", the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

An explosion hit a packed rush-hour train at 8:20 a.m. local time at Parsons Green underground station in West London.

Numerous injuries are believed to have been suffered when hundreds of passengers fled from the train to exit the station amid "shouting and screaming". An image of the explosive device taken by a commuter appeared to show a white bucket in a trash bag, with wire sticking out.
