LONDON (Reuters) - London's Victoria rail station was briefly evacuated on Tuesday morning after workers on a nearby building site found what they thought was an unexploded World War II bomb.

The station reopened just after 11am with only minor delays to rail services, said a British Transport Police spokesperson.

The "bomb" eventually turned out to be a camping stove gas cylinder, the police added.
