No tube delays at Victoria Underground station, TfL confirm
A spokesperson from Transport for London told Getwestlondon: “The trains were non-stopping and ran through Victoria, so delays are minimal.”
Services resumed soon after the unexploded bomb was discovered.
Unexploded bombs previously found in West London
It is not the first time an evacuation has took place due to an unexploded bomb.
Around 300 addresses were evacuated in May 2015 when builders working at a site in Empire Way, Wembley, unearthed an unexploded Second World War bomb.
Following this, in the same year, a bomb was discovered at a building site next to Westfield shopping centre, leading to an evacuation of those in the Shepherd’s Bush area.
Victoria Station re-opened
National Rail are yet to confirm whether any severe delays will occur as a result of the incident, although London Underground have confirmed that services on the Victoria line have resumed as normal and will be stopping at the station.
Commuters have photographed the scene as services slowly resume.
Others showed their frustration as evacuation halted all routes in and out of the station, causing delays.
