Knightsbridge Station is on the Piccadilly Line and is found in the Belgravia area of West London.

TfL announced that the station had reopened at 8.32pm, but the nature of the incident wasn’t known until this morning.

A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “The station was closed as a result of a near miss and service resumed at 8.26pm on Thursday evening (October 27).

“A near miss is when a collision or accident nearly happens, but is avoided. In this case it was a Tube train nearly hitting someone but thankfully not, so there was no actual collision.”
