Scores of people were earlier today evacuated from a shopping centre in Stratford after an apparent security alert.
Roads around the Stratford Centre were closed causing long delays. It’s also led to numerous buses being diverted or terminating early.
The building is opposite Stratford Station and the Westfield Shopping Centre, but they are not believed to have been affected by the security alert.
Police have put cordons in place while they investigate the incident and some offices nearby have been evacuated as well.
The Met Police said: ‘Police dealing with a suspicious incident within Stratford mall, E15.
‘Please be aware of road closures which should soon be ressolved’
