London - London's Victoria station was evacuated and temporarily closed early on Thursday because of a fire on an empty airport train, National Rail said.

Smoke was seen pouring from the engine of a Gatwick Express train linking central London with Gatwick airport to the south-east. No-one was injured, said National Rail.

Traffic was running with delays after the station was reopened.
