Police officers shepherded them into an adjacent building after they emerged with their hands in the air, exclaiming the suspect made them do it.

The suspect, allegedly wearing gas canisters, was reportedly angry he had failed to gain an HGV licence and is said to have pronounced ‘I have nothing to live for.’

A police spokesman said officers have learned the identity of the suspect.

Police are trying to find out if more hostages remain in the building.

Scotland Yard has asked anyone with information about the incident to attend Holborn police station, in Lambs Conduit Street, off Theobald’s Road.
