Shoppers have been evacuated from a John Lewis in south west London after a bomb threat.
The Metropolitan Police are at the scene after threats were made to the department store in Wood Street, Kingston, at 9.50am.
Road, including Kingston Bridge, have been sealed off while emergency services investigate.
“The store has been evacuated and London Ambulance Service are in attendance as a precaution,” said a Met spokeswoman.
“There have been no reported injuries. A number of closures, including Kingston Bridge, are in place while officers search the premises.”
The force added that the incident is not believed to be terror related.
A John Lewis spokesman said: “We can confirm that our John Lewis and Waitrose shops in Kingston were evacuated this morning as instructed by the police.
“The safety of our customers and partners is our top priority and we are working closely with the emergency services as they handle the situation.”
