London's Euston station evacuated by armed police after fistfight breaks out

London's Euston station evacuated by armed police after fistfight breaks out
Armed police have descended on London’s Euston station following reports of a stabbing and mass fistfight. Bystanders fled the station amid what Transport for London called a “police incident.”

The incident took place on Saturday afternoon, sending travelers fleeing in panic from the city’s fourth-busiest train station. Eyewitnesses described “police with guns everywhere,” and “people running up escalators.”

Though rumors of a stabbing circulated on social media, the British Transport Police later clarified that "there was no knife involved and no stabbing took place."

Saturday's knife panic came two weeks after a convicted terrorist stabbed two people in the London suburb of Streatham, seriously injuring one. The attacker was shot dead by police following his “Islamist-related” knife rampage.
