There was disruption to the mainline and London Underground services but all are now running normally. Police and rail staff are working to reopen the station, which is one of London’s busiest. A BTP spokesman said: “A man claiming to have a bomb at Charing Cross station has now been arrested. “We are now working to reopen the station as soon as possible would like to thank passengers and rail staff for their patience and understanding during this incident.”
