Leicester Square buildings have been evacuated after bomb threat, according to reports.

Witnesses said they were asked to leave the Lego Store and Imax cinema in the central London area this afternoon.

One person said: ‘Spent an hour waiting in the rain to get into the @LEGO_Group Store in London. Got to the front of the queue – as in next people in – and the store and all of Leicester Square was evacuated due to a bomb threat. How do I explain the situation to a disappointed 6-year-old?’
