ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Several people were injured at a London underground station on Friday (September 15) after witnesses reported a blast on a packed rush-hour commuter train which police are treating as a terrorism incident. Eyewitnesses described seeing a "flash" or a "fireball" in the carriage, which was followed by panic as commuters desperately tried to get off the train and flee the scene. Emergency services said they had been called to reports of a fire on a train at Parsons Green station in West London at 8.20 a.m. (0720 GMT). British police say that an improvised explosive device was the cause of the blast. Prime Minister Theresa May will chair a meeting of Britain's emergency response committee later on Friday, her office said in a statement.
