Police have started a manhunt after a cannister of tear gas was thrown onto a packed Tube train in London today.

A number of people were treated at the scene by paramedics on Sunday morning for coughing and shortness of breath after the pair released what police believe to be "CS gas".

There are no further concerns for their health, they said.

Officers have urged anyone "who witnessed the incident, or who knows the identity of the men [in the released images]" to contact them by text on 61016, or by calling them directly on 0800 40 50 40 and quoting reference 171 of 20/07/19.

The 26-year-old said at first he thought the men were drunk "because they were trying to frantically get into the carriage" while the train was moving northbound between Green Park and Oxford Circus.

"No further health concerns".

Meanwhile, a TFL official said: 'We've been assured that the substance was not toxic, the BTP are aware of this customer incident and are investigating it fully'.
