Goswell Road incident: Buildings evacuated in north London during security alert near Angel Tube station

People have been evacuated and others “told to avoid windows” alongside a significant street in Islington during a “security alert”. 

Emergency companies closed a part of Goswell Road, with TfL saying police are responding to a security alert 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 in the realm took to Twitter to say they’d been evacuated during the incident on Tuesday. 

Nazmia wrote: “We’ve just been evacuated from college as has another building on Goswell Road.”

Another added: “Whats happening on Goswell Road in Islington? My auntie is at work and has been told to stay away from the windows.”

A police spokesman mentioned later confirmed cordons had been in place “due to an unattended bag on a bus in Goswell Road”.

“This security alert has now been cleared and is non-suspicious,” he added.
