London Bridge terror alert last night: what happened?

London Bridge Station was on lockdown last night after a man sparked a 9/11 anniversary terror alert after telling train staff he had a bomb.

Thousands of people were evacuated from the station after a 45-year old man got on a South Eastern train at Cannon Street and, shortly after passengers had boarded the train at London Bridge, pulled the communication cord and announced he had a bomb.

Armed police were on the scene and apprehended the man at 7.15pm, taking him to a south London police station to be questioned.

The black briefcase the man was carrying was examined and forensic experts discovered his claim was a hoax.
