Major delays hit one of London’s busiest rail stations after a fire on a train.

Smoke was seen pouring from the engine of a Gatwick Express train at Victoria station, which was evacuated as fire crews put it out.

The train was empty at the time, National Rail said, and no one is reported to have been injured.

All platforms have been reopened to the public, and trains are running as normal but with delays.
