The incident led to the closure of Lambeth Road between Hercules Road and Albert Embankment, including Pratt Walk.

The Metropolitan Police's major incident centre at 109 Lambeth Road was at the centre of the evacuated area.

Early reports described a "chemical incident" although a "non-suspicious" gas leak was later confirmed.
