    There have been reports of people "running in panic" and armed police at the scene, the Daily Mail reported.

    London Euston station has been evacuated following reports of a stabbing incident, media reports say.

    ​Eyewitnesses took to social media to describe what they saw at the station.

    ​A spokesperson for Transport for London (TFL) has confirmed to the Daily Mail that the Euston bus station is closed due to a 'police incident'.

    "Buses serving Euston are being diverted or terminate [will] earlier than usual. Please speak to the driver before boarding."

    This comes amid the ongoing increase in knife crime in London. According to Home Office statistics released last year, after falling for several years, knife crime in England and Wales has been on the rise since 2015.
