Default What happened on the Victoria line yesterday?

Not that it affected me personally, a couple of work colleagues were.
Does anyone know?

At about 7:30 am, the southbound service had just left Oxford Circus heading
towards Green Park when the brakes failed and the train stopped. Couldn't be
moved as no power to the brakes. Another service behind this was evacuated
at Oxford Circus a few minutes later, and driven further up the tunnel to
the broken down one. Then the train behind this was also evacuated at Oxford
Circus. The passengers on the broken down train then had to walk down the
three trains to Oxford Circus. By then it was 9:00 am. Other trains were
evacuated at Warren St and Euston.
