A man has been stabbed in Trafalgar Square, one of London's most popular tourist spots.

Emergency Services were called at 9.11pm on Wednesday evening following reports of a knife attack.

Large sections of the square were taped off as several police cars and vans attended the scene, along with the London Ambulance Service.

They found a victim suffering from stab-wounds, which are not life-threatening.
