BBC:

Police in Birmingham in the Midlands are evacuating the city centre.
Earlier they issued a warning they had received intelligence suggesting a threat to the area.

"Our response needs to be proportionate in the action we're taking and in informing the public," a spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said.

Police are now closing down the Birmingham Broad street entertainment zone and asking people to go home. A statement will be released shortly.

Helicopters have been hovering over the area since about 8 PM. No vehicles are being allowed to move.

I've heard that the police have done some controlled explosions. Maybe they found something.

I've not heard that, but if that's the case then yes, I think they would have found something

Let's hope that this is just (understandable) panic.
Fingers crossed...

The next terrorist attack in Europe by the same type of group is going to be in another country.
