ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Heavily armed police rushed to an incident at a London underground station on Friday (September 15) with local media reporting there had been an explosion on a train. A Reuters witness could see six ambulances, fire engines and a helicopter at Parsons Green station in West London where the Metro newspaper reported that passengers had suffered facial burns from a blast and others had been hurt in a subsequent stampede. Outside the station, a woman was sitting on a sidewalk with a bandage around her leg while armed police patrolled. A Reuters witness saw a woman being carried off on a stretcher with her legs covered in a foil blanket. British police say a number of people have suffered injuries, but it's too early to confirm the cause of the fire.
