One of London’s major transport centres was in chaos Tuesday afternoon after London Bridge Station was shut due to a “suspicious vehicle” left nearby.
Police were seen deploying a bomb disposal robot as workers and travellers left the station and surrounding buildings. Office workers were also told to stay indoors and away from windows.
The rail station, which is the fourth busiest in the capital, was evacuated along with the bus station. Trains were also not calling at the tube station.
Witnesses report people rushing to get away from the scene.
The nearby bridge across the River Thames was also closed to traffic.
