Incident at Oval tube?

According to a police officer leaving the scene, there was an incident at Oval Tube station this morning. He didn't give me any more details.

At about 8:25, everybody was preparing to leave, but I counted at least 2 fire engines, 2 ambulances, 1 services motorbike, 2 medium size police vans and 2 British Transport Police units (sort of a cross between fire engines and police units).

Apparently, buses weren't stopping at the bus stop for some time, but have since resumed. Obviously, there was quite a considerably traffic build up.

What on earth happened? Does anybody have more details?

Edit: See blog comment. Apparently, one person under a train necessitates 10 emergency vehicles.

"Passenger under a train at Oval" they said by way of explanation that that the Northern Line was closed from Moorgate to Morden.

I wonder if Oval residents might be interested in a new local venture in Camberwell and surrounding areas? Gay Camberwell at is a website bringing together events, bar and restaurant reviews, a blog, a message board, and other stuff for gay people and their friends in the area. We're having a launch month in November with a launch party, a free gay film season, special night at Oval House theatre, a couple of clubs, and various other entertainment, and it would be great to see you there. All information, of course, is on our shiny new website
