As we detailed earlier, the area around London Bridge – near the heart of London’s financial center – has been evacuated and the bomb squad is presently investigating a security alert.
As Newsyab reports, London Bridge has been shut down and the station closed over a ‘safety alert’ which has drawn swarms of safety products and services to the relevant London thoroughfare.
