Waterloo security alert: Hundreds evacuated from the Old Vic theatre …

Hundreds of people were evacuated from a central London1 theatre following a “bomb scare”. Police confirmed that the Old Vic, near Waterloo station, was evacuated on Saturday afternoon due to a “security alert”, with people also told to leave nearby pubs and restaurants. Pictures emerged on social media of people leaving the theatre and a police2 cordon blocking nearby roads.

Star Wars actor John Boyega is playing the leading role in play Woyzeck at the Old Vic and reportedly joined visitors in a nearby garden as staff searched the building. One visitor told the Standard he had heard from officers that the play was evacuated due to a “bomb scare” following a phone call to staff. A Met Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called at 14:38pm on Saturday, May 27, to The Cut, Waterloo, to a report of a security alert at a theatre.

“The theatre took the decision to evacuate the building.”

People reported being sent to nearby Imperial War Museum gardens alongside the play’s cast while the building is being searched. Liam Joseph, 21, was in the crowds when he saw two production managers come to stop the play. He told the Standard: “I think I was one step ahead and I started to panic when I saw them come onto the stage.”

He added: “You start looking at the emergency exits and start planning things yourself.

“I spotted flashlights to my front and to my right and thought this can’t be good .

I saw that and thought – okay, something’s happening.”

He said the cast calmly left the stage and followed the theatre-goers out to the Imperial War Museum, praising staff for their “brilliant” reaction to the threat.

Theatregoers were reportedly told the play may restart after the building is thoroughly searched by officers.

He went on: “I’m with my girlfriend and we’re not not too keen on going back actually.”

Since the building was evacuated, the Metropolitan Police has confirmed the incident was stood down shortly after 4.20pm after “nothing suspicious was found.”
