A man has been arrested right outside St Paul’s Cathedral in front of  tourists. 

According to The City of London Police, at 12:05 today, a man was arrested by armed officers for the possession of a firearm.

The police claimed this incident wasn’t terror related. The police have blocked an entrance to the grounds on Paternoster Row road London in order to carry on with their investigation.

It was believed that the suspected gunman drew out his weapon and pulled the trigger but no bullet was fired according to the BBC.
