London: London police said there was no evidence of shots having been fired nor of any casualties in an incident that sparked panic in the city's Oxford Circus shopping district early on Friday evening.

Police had earlier said they were responding to reports of shots fired as if they could be terrorist-related.

"Our response on #OxfordStreet has now been stood down," the Metropolitan Police said on its official Twitter account.

"Given the nature of the info received we responded as if the incident was terrorism, including the deployment of armed officers," police added.

The police said they had found no evidence of previously reported gunshots, and that there were no casualties.

"Oxford Circus and Bond Street stations now both reopened and all trains are stopping normally," the city's transport authority said on one of its official Twitter accounts.
