UPDATE: ‘No suspects, no shots, no casualties’ say police after armed officers rush to Oxford Circus amid stampede of panicked shoppers on Black Friday
Hundreds have been evacuated from Oxford Circus tube station amid reports of gunshots.
Armed police have arrived on scene after a gunman was reported to have fired shots.
The area is in lockdown and comes on one of the busiest shopping days of the year and pedestrians are being asked to inside buildings as police flood the area.
Greg Bird told MailOnline he was sat outside a coffee shop near Oxford Circus station when he saw ‘about 50 people sprinting around the corner and screaming’.
