A body was found at a Tube station in the middle of the night, police said this morning. They are treating the death as ‘unexplained’, according to British Transport Police following the discovery at 1.27am. Half the Northern Line is shut and Old Street Tube station is on lockdown.
A British Transport Police spokesman said: “We were called to Old Street underground station at 1.27am this morning to reports that the body had been found. The death is currently being treated as unexplained and the station is closed while investigations continue.”
It is unclear whether the body was that of a man or a woman due to the extent of their injuries.
