Hundreds of commuters stranded outside Oxford Circus Station

Hundreds of people were stranded outside Oxford Circus Tube station yesterday after London Underground temporarily closed the station due to overcrowding.

Commuters took to Twitter to vent their frustration.





Back in March, more than a thousand people were stuck outside Oxford Circus Station after a Victoria line train broke down.

Peter McNaught, operations director for London Underground, said: “Due to vast crowds that often visit the West End we sometimes have to temporarily close the station to ensure safety and prevent overcrowding at lower levels of the station.

“We are sorry to those who got caught up or delayed. We are expanding Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street stations to meet demand and the opening of Crossrail will mean vital new capacity.”
