London's Liverpool Street station has been reopened after a fire alert.
The station had been evacuated at around 7:30am and was shut for around half an hour. A spokeswoman for the London Fire Brigade said no fire crews had been called to the scene.
The Central Line, Circle Line, Metropolitan Line and the Hammersmith & City Line were prevented from stopping at the London station while authorities investigated the matter.
It did not affect the mainline station.
This is the second time a station has been closed for a fire alert in less than a day. Yesterday afternoon Westminster Station was shut briefly, although it later turned out to be a false alarm.
And earlier in the week, South Kensington was shut after a suspicious package was discovered, though this also turned out to be a false alarm.
