People's Daily - Oxford Circus station has reopened.
After an hour of what police believed was a terror threat, authorities released a statement, "To date police have not located any trace of any suspects, evidence of shots fired or casualties.”
And soon afterwards authorities posted on Twitter, "Our response on has now been stood down.”
"If you sought shelter in a building please now leave, and follow the direction of police officers on the ground if you need assistance," read another statement from authorities.
UK authorities are on high alert after experiencing five attacks this year, which have left many people dead.
30 people were injured from the last London subway attack in September.
