Bit more from Ananova:

Emergency services personnel are attending three different tube stations in London following "incidents", police said.

A British Transport Police spokeswoman said Warren Street, Shepherds Bush and Oval stations had all been evacuated. She said the incidents were "ongoing".

Passengers at Warren Street reported seeing smoke.

Services on the Victoria and Northern lines were suspended following reports of a number of incidents.

London fire brigade said there were reports of smoke coming from Oval station, which crews were investigating.

There were unconfirmed reports of some kind of explosion at Warren Street station.

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said: "Emergency services personnel are responding to reports of incidents at three locations on the Underground - the Oval, Warren Street and Shepherd's Bush."

Police were also among those attending the three stations, she said.

She could not confirm reports that witnesses at Warren Street had seen smoke.

It is two weeks to the day since the London bombings, when three suicide bombers detonated bombs on Tube trains in the capital and a fourth blew himself up on a bus.

Great! Loads more uninformed speculation to keep the media happy.

I'm just going to sit this one out for a few hours and grab the summary when hopefully some people actually know what's happened. Then see if I can get home from work in the City!

Dummy explosions using detonators only have sparked the evacuation of three Tube stations and the closure of three lines, a BBC correspondent has said.

Looks like this time it was only done to create a panic and to disrupt the transport system.
