No details at this time, other than what @EDP24 are reporting, but Police have responded to an incident on board a National Express bus towards Great Yarmouth in Norwich, and evacuated the coach.

@EDP24 Queen's Road is still closed off in one direction, heading away from St Stephens Roundabout.

@EDP24 Eyewitnesses report one man was detained on the bus while other passengers were evacuated.

Turned out to be nothing:
Norfolk Constabulary said:
Officers were called at 4.20pm on Monday 21 March 2016 to a report of a suspicious package on a coach travelling from London to Norwich.

The coach was carefully monitored by police until it came to a stop on Queens Street in the city and all passengers were safely removed from the vehicle.

A cordon was put in place around the coach in the interest of public safety and specialist officers were deployed to the scene as a precaution.

Following further enquiries the bag was found not to be suspicious and the officers were stood down.

On my trip into London today there were police and PCSOs out in force, at Finsbury Park, Victoria, Waterloo, Westminster, Stratford and Tottenham Hale - and for obvious reasons.

We've had our local shopping centre evacuated over a suspect package so I guess everyone is on edge.
