Helicopters are hovering above the London Bridge station, as passengers have been evacuated from following a security alert. Operators said trains are being diverted, and warned commuters of cancellations and delays.
British Transport Police said in a statement: “Officers were called to #LondonBridge station at 12.33pm today following reports of a suspicious item on board a train.
“The station has been closed as a precaution while specialist officers assess the item.”
Trains will not head to the central London station, Network Rail said as the disruption is expected to last until 1:45pm local time.
The actor Daniel Coonan said in a tweet that there are “strange scenes” in London.
Strange scenes at London. The police are everywhere evacuating the station and forcing people off the platforms. Londoners typically demanding the police to tell them why they can’t get a train to where they want to get to. Multiple helicopters in the sky above.— Daniel Coonan (@DannyCoonan) April 21, 2021
