A man who claimed to have a bomb at the Charing Cross Terminal in central London has been detained, the British Transport Police (BTP) said.
Earlier in the day, the Charing Cross station had been evacuated and closed as a precaution following reports of a man going onto the tracks and claiming to have a bomb.
“Officers are currently assisting the British Transport Police at Charing Cross train station following a report of a man acting suspiciously. The station has been evacuated as a precaution and is currently closed,” Scotland Yard said.
A few minutes later the Transport Police announced that the suspect had been arrested.
Witnesses said they saw several police vehicles going down the street to Charing Cross station.
