Hundreds of workers have been evacuated from their offices after a gas leak in the City of London.
 
Engineers are attending the leak at London Wall, which is closed in both directions between Wood Street and Blomfield Street.
 
Moorgate is also closed at its junction with Lothbury, close to the Bank of England.
A 25-metre cordon is in place and London Wall is likely to remain closed for two hours, City of London Police said.
 
A London Fire Brigade spokesman said the alarm was raised at 3.56pm.
 
Police started evacuating nearby offices shortly after 4pm.

A business owner who was evacuated from London Wall said emergency services at the scene told him the leak was “absolutely massive”.
 
Matt Harris told the London Evening Standard: “They’re telling us it’s an absolutely massive gas leak in the sub-basement of an office building on London Wall, near the Moorgate junction.
 
“They said they’re going to have to dig the street up to get the gas out.” 
 
Mr Harris, 42, added: “People were looking, thinking, wondering whether something more serious was going on, but they formed an orderly queue and moved in the direction they were meant to be going in.
 
“London Fire Brigade and the police are not running around in panic mode, they seem to be waiting for the right people to come out to do what they’ve got to do.”
