British police on Friday said they had arrested a man at London’s Charring Cross railway station who claimed he had a bomb.

“A man claiming to have a bomb at #CharingCross station has now been arrested.
“We are now working to reopen the station as soon as possible,’’ British transport police said.
Footage on social media showed a large police presence including armed officers at the station which handles services to the capital from southeast England.
Britain is currently on its second highest threat level of “severe’’, meaning an attack by militants is considered highly likely.
