The Reuters witness said the area around the station had been cleared of people and traffic. Fire engines were heading towards the scene, the witness added.

The capital’s transport operator, Transport for London, said trains were not stopping at the station due to the unspecified incident.

London’s police force urged people on Oxford Street, a major shopping district in the centre of the city, to go inside while they dealt with an ongoing incident on Friday.

“If you are on Oxford Street go into a building. Officers are on scene and dealing (with it),” the Metropolitan Police said on their official Twitter feed.© Thomson Reuters 2017
