Nigel Holness, London Underground's director of network operations, said:
"The cause of the smoke was an electrical fault under one of the carriages,
which resulted in a small fire that was quickly extinguished."

Let's hope it's not a generic fault with the elderly 1972TS that

A Bakerloo closure in August when Waterloo is already half-shut is
