Sky News Live (CLICK Play for live stream).

London firefighters, medics and police responded about 08:20 BST (07:20 GMT) on Friday morning to an explosion on a Tube train in west London and evacuated the train at Parsons Green — an underground station. There is at least one witness report of a flash and a bang from a bag. Video of the scene show show people evacuated above ground. Train operation involves electrified tracks which must be shut down for safe evacuation.

The explosion occurred as many people were on the train on the way to work. The incident has not yet been officially called a terror act but is being treated as a terror act, while an accidental “explosion” is being ruled out by investigators.

Parsons Green is a mainly residential district on the District Line in the west London area of London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The District line is a London Underground line (one of many, and color-coded green) that runs from Upminster in the east to Earl’s Court in west London, where it splits into a number of branches. The District line is the busiest of the sub-surface lines, and is the fifth-busiest line overall in the public rapid transit system (known as the London Underground or Underground) serving London and some parts of the adjacent counties of Buckinghamshire, Essex and Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom

Many people are reported injured with scorched faces and hair.

Witnesses described seeing at least one passenger with facial injuries.

London Ambulance Service says it has sent a hazardous area response team to the scene.

Many people were injured with cuts and bruises that occurred during panic and fleeing from the scene.

At least one person was seen on a stretcher with burns to her face and legs.

Armed police, firefighters, medics, and a hazardous area response team responded to the scene within five minutes.

An apparent photograph of the incendiary device showed a white bucket with small flames, and with wires protruding out of the top and draping down the train passenger car floor. The device apparently did not cause a severe blast, but did cause — as witnesses report — a wall of flames that moved down the interior of the passenger car.
