Services at one of London's busiest Tube stations were affected during the morning rush period after plaster fell from a ceiling.
London Underground said westbound Central Line trains were not stopping at Oxford Circus after a "small amount" of plaster fell from above a platform.
No passengers were hit by the plaster.
Transport for London's Howard Collins said: "This was caused by water ingress and has now been repaired, and trains are stopping normally again."
Services were disrupted between 09:05 GMT and 10:45 GMT.
RMT union leader Bob Crow said: "RMT has warned repeatedly about the impact of maintenance cuts and specifically the widening of schedules from a 14-day to a 28-day cycle."
