Original Message Witness Alicia Porter said on Twitter "there was a very loud noise, lots of screaming and a crowd of people running a sprinting for exits".

Other footage shows a large number of officers on the second floor of the store by the escalator.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said that officers stopped a man after he was suspected to be in possession of a concealed weapon on the ground floor at around 4.20pm.

"He was stopped by police and searched and a knife was found. He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon," the spokesman said.
