Commuters are facing delays on the Jubilee line this morning after a fire alert led to the closure of Canning Town station.

The east London Tube station was evacuated and closed when the fire alarms were set off, but has since reopened.

London Fire Brigade was called just before 10AM, a spokesman said, and one fire engine was sent to the scene to investigate.
