And I'll bet all of the injuries were actually caused by idiots panicing
rather than the explosion itself.

Given the terrorist bombs and other attacks at various sites around London
and the rest of the UK, I defy anyone *not* to assume the worst when there
is an explosion. Would you be able to react calmly and assess whether or not
this explosion was a bomb, in the heat of the moment?

I've been in a couple of serious car accidents over the years. I didn't panic
then and I doubt I'd panic just because something was on fire in a station
which has easy egress. That does mean I wouldn't hurry out but it does mean
I wouldn't be pushing people over and trampling old people on the way which
it seems is what happened to at least 1 old person there.

Aha:

Police arrest London man on suspicion of "act likely to cause explosion"
after small blast at Southgate Tube station

And released "under investigation" once they had chatted with him,
according to the Daily Fail article linked to up ^ there somewhere.

They arrest anyone likely to be even slightly connected with such
incidents as an @rse covering exercise, so that if they do decide to
prosecute, a clever lawyer can't later say "If you didn't think he was
innocent, why did you not arrest him immediately?" If it turns out he is
innocent, then the arrest should be marked as a false arrest.

Either it was done deliberately or it wasn't, someone needs to make their
mind up.

Deliberate, but not as an act of terrorism, perhaps? For example taping
up a safety cut-out on a tool.
