London skyscraper the Shard, home to restaurants and hotels including the Shangri-La, Oblix, Hutong and Aquashard, has been evacuated following a fire alarm.
Customers in the 72-storey building were forced to leave their belongings and make their way down the many flights of stairs just after 3.10pm today after the London Fire Brigade (LFB) were called.
LFB confirmed that engines were called to the scene but the Metropolitan Police had no record of a call-out of their service.
LFB added that following a thorough investigation the incident had been declared a "false alarm", which make up a third of its emergency calls.
The evacuation comes just months after Chinese restaurant Hutong on the 33rd floor of the London Bridge-based building, suffered a fire in its kitchen on 4 August. There were no injuries, although 100 people from the 31st, 32nd and 33rd floor were forced to evacuate. The restaurant remained closed for three days immediately afterwards.
The Shard was also evacuated in early June after smoke was seen coming from the basement, but no injuries or further problems were reported.
