Peter McNaught, London Underground's Operations Director, said: "London Underground has an excellent and continually improving safety record and such incidents on the Tube are very rare."
McNaught added: "We apologised fully to our customers, worked hard to resume services as soon as possible and our staff were on hand on the platform to assist those who were leaving the train. We have fully assisted the RAIB in their enquiries, as well as carrying out our own investigation.
The uncontrolled evacuation at Holland Park is still under investigation. In its report today the Rail Accident Investigation Branch said the train operator was not aware that a fault with the brakes was generating smoke and fumes.
Terrified Tube passengers were stuck on a carriage which was rapidly filling with smoke for three-and-a-half minutes.
An official report into the accident at Holland Park Station on 25 August says that while the main doors were still shut, some passengers tried to squeeze out by opening the side doors between carriages.

Despite the panic, no one was injured. However the Rail Accident Investigation Branch said:
"There was potential for injuries to occur because the train was heavily loaded and a large number of people were prevented from leaving the train for almost four minutes after it stopped."
