Two people have been stabbed and a man arrested at an address in central London that is home to the offices of Sony Music.

Armed police descended on the Sony building shortly after 11am and evacuated more than 100 workers through the back door.

Trish Ellis, a personal assistant at The Mail on Sunday newspaper who witnessed the incident, told the Press Association news agency: "Armed police were going in six-plus at a time, and more and more of them but they seemed to be keeping people in the building".

Neither of those stabbed suffered life-threatening injuries, the force confirmed.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police said: "One person arrested".

"Officer remain on scene and the incident remains ongoing".

Sony Music's offices are in upmarket Kensington, west London, which is the home to several worldwide embassies and a royal residence, Kensington Palace, meaning there is routinely a visible police presence in the area.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We were called at 11:01 today to Derry Street, W8, to reports of an incident".

"Evacuations have taken place as a precaution", police said. Dramatic footage later showed a casualty being wheeled away in a stretcher.

The London Ambulance Service said it took one victim to a hospital and the other to a major trauma centre.

'We treated two people at the scene.

Eye witnesses have told reporters a fight broke out between the two, which ended with one being stabbed by the other with a large kitchen knife and there was "blood everywhere".

A315 Kensington High Street has been closed between Kensington Church Street and Wright's Lane. No evidence of any firearms involved in this incident.
