Breaking: Holborn Tube Evacuated

Holborn tube station has been closed and evacuated, and the area around it cordoned off, in what the Twitter rumour-mill is calling a bomb alert. This photo by @EGStaceyM shows the area largely deserted, while @mattrhodes suggests that the source of the alert is the nearby Metro bank, not the station itself. @Chris_Coltrane has had a chat with local police, who say a series of boxes with wires coming out of them were found near some bins. 17.25 update: The package has been cleared, the roads and Tube are open again.
