Victoria Station has been evacuated during this morning's rush hour after an alert was raised over an "unexploded bomb".

Thousands of people were ordered to leave both the Tube and rail station.

The Met Police say officers are attending a building site following the discovery of what is believed ordnance from World War II.

Images on social media show a heavy police presence and cordon as commuters left the station.

The Tube, mainline rail and bus stations were reopened around 10.15am as the incident was stood down.
