Highbury and Islington and Finsbury Park tube stations in North London have been evacuated after reports of a fire on a train.
The alarm was raised shortly after Arsenal's home game against Bournemouth at the nearby Emirates Stadium.
A spokesman for Transport for London (TfL) has stated the incident has now been cleared up and both stations have been re-opened.
He added that there was no fire on the train, it was simply a faulty train. However, there still remain severe delays in the Victoria line as a result.
Nearby Caledonian Road station on the Piccadilly Line was closed earlier in the day due to faulty lifts.
