People are being evacuated and others have reportedly been told to avoid home windows alongside a significant highway in Islington during a “security alert”. 

Emergency companies have closed a part of Goswell Road, with TfL saying police are responding to a security alert near near Angel Tube station.

A TfL spokesman added: “A1 Goswell Road is blocked between City Road and Wakley Street due to an emergency services incident.” 

People within the space took to Twitter to say they’d been evacuated during the incident on Tuesday.
