Oxford Circus incident: What has been happening in central London

Police Responding to Incident at Underground Station in London

British police released on Friday night surveillance photos of two men who may be responsible for sparking panic and a stampede earlier in the day on Oxford Street in central London.

The most recent involved a bomb on a packed London Underground train in south-west London in September, which injured 30 people.

The Metropolitan Police said they received "numerous" 999 calls claiming they had heard gunshots in Oxford Street and at Oxford Circus station.

The British Transport Police said it believed there had been an altercation between two men on the platform before the scare.

One post read: "The Mail use a tweet from 10 days ago, reporting it as today's Oxford Circus incident".

"We discharged seven patients at the scene and took eight patients to two central London hospitals for minor injuries".

Police initially treated the reported gunfire as a terrorist incident and social media was filled with alarming false reports about shooting at several locations.

The station was reopened, cordons removed and the area returned to normal, with the Royal Variety Performance at the nearby London Palladium going ahead as planned.

Officers sealed off the surrounding area and closed Bond Street station as a crowd control measure while armed police responded to the reports.

"Officers working with colleagues from British Transport Police carried out an urgent search of the area".

However, Met Police said they could find no evidence of shots fired or any suspects.

Armed police have arrived on the scene to handle the situation after a gunman was reported to be firing shots.

Shoppers were told to leave their shopping and flee the store.

If you are on Oxford Street go into a building and stay inside until further direction. Everybody turned round in sort of pandemonium and started trying to exit the Tube as quickly as possible. "I didn't know which way to run", the witness said.

"Within... a couple of minutes there were armed response units and police cars absolutely everywhere. I am glad nobody was hurt", she said. At least three heavily armed men believed to be police could be seen on the escalators inside. People were climbing on top of each other.

Anyone with any information can call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 citing reference 405 of 24/11.
