Europe was on high alert today as countries tightened their security in the wake of the deadly terror attacks in Paris.

In a sign of the nervousness gripping the continent, Copenhagen Airport was evacuated this morning while Germany’s international fixture with Holland last night was called off.

At the Vatican, children, pensioners and even nuns were being searched ahead of the Pope’s weekly general audience.

Security has been stepped up after gunmen and suicide bombers went on the rampage in Paris, killing 129 in a wave of attacks on the Stade de France, bars and restaurants and the Bataclan theatre.

In London earlier today, Tooting Broadway tube station was evacuated by police following a security alert.

Heavily armed police evacuated the line, after receiving reports of a man on the train threatening people with a pair of scissors.

Officers swarmed the underground station and passengers were ordered off a train while they searched for a man matching the description. But no one was found and the incident was stood down.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: ‘Police were called at around 12:50pm today to reports of a man, reportedly armed with scissors, threatening passengers on a train bound for Tooting Broadway underground station.
