Police cordon on Lincoln’s Inn Fields following armed robbery

Police cordon Lincoln's Inn Fields

We heard a couple of loud bangs this morning at around 0800 – it appears that it may have been someone with a gun robbing Ladbrokes betting shop on Kingsway.  The suspect(s) apparently fled through the Fields.  A police cordon is in operation at the NW corner of the Fields as they gather evidence – a sniffer dog was in earlier and presumably found something dropped. Cordon expected to be lifted by about 1500.  No indication that anyone was hurt, mercifully.  People are being let through the cordon one by one or being asked to use rear entrances on Whetstone Park.

UPDATE – The Evening Standard has a little more info.
