British police said they had not located "any trace" of shots fired or any casualties following a security alert in the Oxford Circus shopping district in London on Friday.

"To date police have not located any trace of any suspects, evidence of shots fired or casualties," London's Metropolitan Police said in a statement after being called to reports of "shots fired".

Two London underground stations on Oxford Street have reopened after an incident that police initially treated as if it might be terrorist-related, the city's transport authority said on Friday.

"Oxford Circus and Bond Street stations now both reopened and all trains are stopping normally," the transport authority said on one of its official Twitter accounts.
