A former London Underground station is expected to be turned into housing after being sold for £53 million.

Brompton Road station, which was closed in 1934, was put on the market by the Ministry of Defence last year.

During World War II it was used as a control centre for anti-craft fire.

Defence minister Andrew Murrison said: "The Ministry of Defence is committed to selling off its surplus land and property in order to provide the best possible value for money to the taxpayer.

"At the same time we take our role as a custodian of the nation's history very seriously and have been working to record the historic significance of the building."

The buyer has not yet been revealed.
