Police have found no evidence of shots having been fired, no suspects and no serious casualties after panic on Oxford Street late this afternoon.

People ran and screamed from Britain’s most famous shopping street on one of its busiest days of the year as teams of armed officers moved in to close down Oxford Circus tube station.

The panic was started after gunfire was reportedly heard in or around the Underground station around 5pm today – but police have yet to find any source of gunshots.

A large section of Oxford Street was locked down at the height of the scare, but much of the area has now been reopened.

MailOnline journalist Keiligh Baker, who was walking towards Carnaby Street from when the incident unfolded, said: ‘Lots of armed police arrived and stormed Oxford Street. They were shouting ‘move, move, move!’.

‘Then the uniformed officers started shouting ‘go, go, go’. People were sprinting and screaming.’
