Emergency services have been called to Woolwich town centre this afternoon where people feared a stabbing had taken place.

One witness described the scene in General Gordon Square as having "the most blood he had ever seen."

But a Met Police spokesman has said that there was no stabbing.

"We were called to Vincent Road by London Ambulance Service at 5.11pm," the spokesman said.

"Upon arrival we found that a person was unconscious."

LAS have been contacted for further comment.
