Police, believed to be armed, swarmed a street after a scare over a stabbing.

Several emergency vehicles were called to Brunel Court, near Harrow Road in Kensal Green, after reports of a stabbing on Sunday (March 17).

One eyewitness says that armed officers were at the scene at around 11am.

The Metropolitan Police say that there was no trace of a victim or a crime having taken place when police arrived.

When a potential witness was spoken to, they clarified that no weapon had been seen.

Despite the incident seemingly being a false alarm, some questioned on social media why officers were at the scene.

The case is not being looked into any further, the Met said.
