Buildings surrounding the BBC’s headquarters have been evacuated amid a bomb scare in central London.

The area outside Broadcasting House was reportedly affected when Portland Place was cordoned off because of reports of a “suspicious vehicle” but journalists inside the building said they were unaffected.

Andrew Wiggins wrote on Twitter that BBC staff were among those moved behind a police cordon in the street.

Some people were reportedly seen running from the BBC as buildings were sealed off in the area and hundreds of workers gathered in the street.

BBC and Portland Place evacuated. Suspect package apparently. Scotland Yard confirmed the alert had been cancelled by 3.15pm and that the vehcile was found to be non-suspicious.
