London shopping centre evacuated after ‘bomb threat’

A shopping centre in London had to be evacuated following a bomb threat this morning.

Bexleyheath Broadway Shopping Centre was cordoned off and all staff and members of the public were evacuated.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at 10:37hrs on Tuesday, 15 March, to reports of a bomb threat at a shopping centre on Albion Road, Bexley.

“The area has been evacuated as a precaution.

“Officers are currently in attendance and the incident is ongoing.

“This incident is not being treated as terror related.”

The shopping centre has since reopened and shoppers are allowed back inside.
