At 7pm on Saturday an alleged stabbing took place at Leytonstone station in east London.

The incident, which reportedly left one man seriously injured and two others harmed, has been labelled a "terrorist incident" by the Metropolitan Police.

Following the attack, Transport for London were forced to close Central Line services travelling east of Liverpool Street.

This is how TfL reported the disruption to services...

Understatement of the century?
