Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Paddington station evacuated hours after Elizabeth line opening” – below is their description.

Passengers were evacuated from Paddington station in London hours after the Elizabeth line was officially opened to the public. A fire alarm was accidentally set off and passengers had to briefly leave the station on Tuesday. Hundreds of people braved the rain to queue outside for the first train from Paddington through central London on the line originally known as Crossrail. After 13 years of construction, the central section of the line finally opened a week before the Queen’s platinum jubilee celebrations
