United Kingdom police responding to 'incident' at London's Oxford Circus station

London tube

Oxford Circus station is in the heart of London's shopping district, which is particularly busy because of stores offering Black Friday discounts.

Several people were injured and nine were taken to hospital, including one with leg injuries, after panic erupted in the crowded station on Friday.

Police have flooded one of London's busiest areas after receiving multiple reports of shots being fired at Oxford Circus Tube station, but failed to find sign of any gunshots, suspects or casualties - only panicked shoppers. The area was searched swiftly and the station was reopened.

The men, aged 21 and 40, attended a police station voluntarily following an appeal, and the inquiry is continuing.

"I know incidents like these can cause concern, but our officers are highly visible around the network and across the country".

"Officers believe an altercation erupted between two men on the platform", British Transport Police said in a statement.
