A text warning of a terrorist attack on London's Tube network was a hoax, police say.

The text caused widespread panic and read: "They think there's a terror threat and that it will happen on the tubes tomorrow around the west end area. So don't go travelling on tubes!! It's better to be safe than sorry. Please share."

But it was a hoax.

On Sunday, British Transport Police Divisional Commander for London, South & East England, Chief Superintendent Paul Brogden tweeted: "Social media contains lots of rumour regarding threats to tube network tomorrow. There is no specific threat so keep calm & carry on."



Britain raised its terror threat level for ‘substantial’ to ‘severe’ last week.
