Officers continue to deal with what they are calling a "suspicious package", with sniffer dogs searching within a cordoned off area outside on the street.

There have also been reports of a suspicious package at the station.

As police's investigations continue, parts of the Piccadilly line have been closed while trains are now not stopping at Southgate due to concerns following the incident.

"Police were called... to reports of an explosion and people running at Southgate underground station", said a Metropolitan Police spokesman.


Police say no cause has yet been established.

London Ambulance Service said two people have been hospitalised, and another three were treated at the scene for "minor injuries".

"We will update with more info as we get it".

The Metropolitan Police tweeted: "Officers remain at #Southgate tube station".


There is now no Piccadilly line service between Arnos Grove and Cockfosters.

A tube station in London is in lockdown after reports of an explosion.

"We are not aware of any serious injury", the statement added.
