  1. Basically post anything thats happening whereever you are in this thread. Tottenham Court Road closed after man in bomb threat London's Tottenham Court Road has been sealed off and a building evacuated after witnesses reported a man inside had threatened to blow himself up. Police were called just before noon after computer equipment and office furniture was thrown from the fifth floor of an office building. Witnesses claimed a man "had a bomb and was threatening to blow himself up". An internal email from Camden Council seen by the BBC described the incident as "a hostage situation". "Hostages have been ordered to throw computers from the window by the suspect," it said. Scotland Yard said a 300m cordon had been put in place and a negotiator was on scene. The force said: "It is unclear if there are other people in the building." 'Canisters of gas' Tottenham Court Road has been evacuated and Goodge Street Tube station has been closed as a precaution. Eight bus routes have been diverted. An area of Tottenham Court Road has been cordoned off The Metropolitan Police said the man had a grievance against the company. The office building houses news website The Huffington Post UK. Joaqam Ramus, who works at nearby Cafe Fresco, said before being evacuated: "There was talk of a bomb and somebody having a hostage in a building. "All Tottenham Court Road is closed and so are we - the police told us to shut. "We don't know what it is but it seems someone has a hostage." Tamsin Kelly, who works at the location, said two men ran into the building and said the man had a flamethrower and canisters of gas. She added that the two men said they had been let go as they were parents and were told to leave the building. 'Let them go' Leon Farrell, 25, a product manager who works for AOL in Capper Street, just off Tottenham Court Road, said: "Someone ran in to our office white as a sheet and said there was someone who had taken a few people hostage but let them go as they had kids." Publicist David Cox, who works in an adjacent building, said: "There was a guy chucking stuff out of the window - there seemed to be computers and some furniture and then papers. "We have been getting moved further and further back by the police and the cordon is now 300-400 metres away." He added: "The police came in to our reception and told us we had to evacuate the building immediately http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-17869815
