Unexploded WWII Bomb Prompts Evacuation”

Police have shut off the area around Dean Street.

Police have sealed off a number of streets in central London after an unexploded 250-kilogram World War Two bomb was discovered.

Officers were seen going from building to building making sure they were evacuated, including numerous cafes in the area, such as the famed celebrity hangout, The Groucho Club.

In a statement, police in Soho said it had responded to a call at a building site just before 2pm on Monday about a "suspected WWII ordance". The expanded cordon in the neighborhood has facilitated the evacuation of thousands of workers in and around the area.

Shortly after 8.30pm, the Metropolitan Police's Soho team said the cordons in Oxford Street, Charing Cross Road, Shaftesbury Avenue, Lexington Street and Poland Street had been lifted. "We came out of the office and were told to move".

During the war, German air raids dropped more than 12,000 metric tons of bombs on the British capital and killed almost 30,000 Londoners, according to the Imperial War Museum.
