Police are investigating after reports of an explosion on a District Line Underground train in south-west London.

A picture on social media showed a white bucket inside a supermarket bag, but does not appear to show extensive damage in the carriage.

Witnesses have described seeing passengers with facial injuries.

Others have spoken of “panic” as passengers left the train at Parsons Green station in the Fulham area of the capital.

BBC London Correspondent Riz Lateef was at Parsons Green on her way in to work.

“I saw police officers, fire brigade, and telling people to get back.

“I saw masses of people and armed police. There were lots of very, very distressed people. We’ve been pushed right back now.”
