Dalston Kinglands Evacuation

Four passengers were taken to hospital after a "stampede" of passengers on a London Overground train at Dalston Kingsland where a small fire broke out.

The train was at Dalston Kingsland when the small fire broke out at around 7.10am. Firefighters rushed to the scene, with witnesses reporting "pandemonium" as the passengers rushed off the train.

However others have said some perspective should be shown about just how serious the incident was:

London Fire Brigade say their officers extinguished the battery and placed the drill in a bucket of sand in order to bring the fire under control.
