Tourists waiting to board the huge wheel on the capita’s South Bank were told to leave and the wheel stopped.

Josh Blinman tweeted: “London Eye Evacuated following Alarm sounding. All pods Stopped, all queueing passengers asked to vacate the area.”

Another passenger, Daisy Taylor, wrote: “Canny believe we’ve had to get evacuated off the London eye. The fear right now is real.”

The London Eye’s Twitter account tweeted just before 11.30am: “The London Eye is temporarily offloading guests as we investigate a technical issue. 

“We will update as soon as possible.”
