La nostra priorità è valutare il livello e la natura delle lesioni riportate dai passeggeri” ha sottolineato il servizio ambulanze intervenuto accanto ai Vigili del Fuoco accorsi in massa dai distretti di Fulham, Wandsworth, Chelsea, Hammersmith.

La circolazione sulla District line è stata sospesa fra Earls Court e Wimbledon.

London Ambulance Service sent its hazardous area response team to the scene of the incident at Parsons Green metro station, the service's assistant director of operations said in a statement Friday. Earlier in the day, media reported about an explosion of a white container at the station causing tube passengers' facial burns. London's police wrote on Twitter they were at the scene and were investigating reports about the incident. "We were called at 8:20 am [07:20 GMT] to reports of an indecent at Parsons Green underground station. We have sent multiple resources to the scene including singe responders in cars, ambulance crews, incident response officers and our hazardous area response team with the first of our medics arriving in under five minutes.
