The BBC spoke to one commuter who was on the trains who sounded remarkably calm about it all "We were getting regular communication from the driver, but he had no way of finding out what was going on. He was getting frustrated too.
"Some passengers did try and prise the doors open as after an hour or so as it was very stuffy and you really felt like you couldn't breathe."
She added that people shared food around and were happy to give up seats for others.
A Transport for London (TfL) spokesperson said: "Staff from across the Jubilee and Northern lines were called in to assist with the detrainment process.
"Emergency services were called as is standard in these type of situations. However, no customers required medical assistance."
The trains started running again at about twenty to nine at night.
If you were on one of those trains last night, I'd love to hear about what you felt. Many thanks.
