Man arrested over explosion at Southgate Tube station that injured 5

London police are investigating a small explosion at the Southgate Underground station that officials say does not seem to be rela

A man has been arrested after five people were hurt in a small explosion on Tuesday night at Southgate tube station in north London.

The explosion left commuters with minor injuries and is thought to have been caused by a battery short circuit shortly after 7pm.

'He has been released under investigation pending further enquiries'.

Breitbart London reported Tuesday evening that police locked down the station and surrounding area and investigated a "suspicious package" following the "minor explosion".

Priya was on the escalator with her brother when it exploded and told Ian Collins of the injuries caused by people rampaging to get away from the flames.

Five were injured in the aftermath of the blast, which witnesses described as being accompanied by six-foot flames and a smell of burning rubber.

He said he saw a Tube worker pick something up that was on fire and extinguish it, but added: "I think that was secondary rather than the cause".
