A man has been injured by a small power explosion on one of central London’s busiest streets, police said.

A section of Oxford Street was cordoned off after the “power network” blast at around 7pm, Scotland Yard said.

Both police and fire crews were sent to the scene, where the man was said to have suffered minor injuries.

Smoke could be seen rising from the busy thoroughfare as concerned shoppers looked on, in footage posted on social media.

Other images showed the pavement apparently blackened by the explosion.

A spokesman for Metropolitan Police that the explosion did not appear to be suspicious but they would not comment in more detail until experts were able to assess the situation.

UK Power Networks, which oversees the maintenance of the electrical grid in the south of England, said the fault “occurred on an underground electricity cable affecting the local area” on their live incident map.

The body said they did not know when the cordon would be cleared as they warned they “may have to dig up the road to carry out repairs.”
