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.”

Security minister: 15000 people investigated over terror threat

The security services have investigated 15,000 people as they seek to protect Britain from a massive terror threat, a minister revealed today. Security minister Ben Wallace admitted there were valid questions about whether MI5 or the police could have done more to stop suicide bomber Salman Abedi1 from carrying out the Manchester atrocity. However, he insisted there was no failure by the security services and denied they lacked resources despite the number of police officers being cut by thousands . At least one leading expert has challenged this view.

Mr Wallace also accused Jeremy Corbyn of crassly timed comments after the Labour leader used a speech today to link Britain s foreign policy with terrorist attacks in the UK. Speaking in central London, Mr Corbyn argued: We must be brave enough to admit the War on Terror is simply not working . We need a smarter way to reduce the threat from countries that nurture terrorists and generate terrorism. However, Mr Wallace said: Now is not the time to decide to use this event to attack foreign policy decisions .

He insisted that Islamist extremists were launching terror strikes because they hate what we stand for, they hate our society . Up to 500 investigations are being carried out by the security services into around 3,000 individuals. Ben Wallace admitted there were valid questions about whether MI5 or the police could have done more to stop suicide bomber Salman Abedi (PA)

Below the 3,000 is another 12,000 people who have in the past come to our attention and who have not necessarily shown signs of doing anything at all or no longer posing a risk, Mr Wallace told BBC radio.

He rejected criticism from Labour and some police figures that cutting officer numbers by 19,000 was making the UK less safe, and said funding for the security and intelligence services had been increased by 20 per cent to 15.2 billion. Police and security chiefs have been accused of missing chances to stop Abedi, amid claims he was reported several times to the authorities. Professor Michael Clarke, who was director general of the Royal United Services Institute until 2015, said most terrorism could not be prevented, but added: In this case there is a lot of evidence that Abedi and his family and friends were well known to different parts of the security services and police networks and there was a failure to join the dots.

Mr Wallace also signalled new laws to force internet and social media companies such as Facebook and YouTube to swiftly take down material that could encourage terrorism. At a G7 meeting in Sicily, Italy, Theresa May was due to say: The fight is moving from the battlefield to the internet . Corporations can do more.

Indeed, they have a social responsibility to now step up their efforts to remove harmful content from their networks.
