Jamie Campbell Bower caught up in London siege drama

Jamie Campbell Bower was caught up in a terrifying siege in London on Friday (27Apr12).

Cops shut down bustling Tottenham Court Road in central London and evacuated offices and shops when a man claiming to have a bomb reportedly took four people hostage following a dispute over a haulage licence.


Nearby streets were cleared of passers-by as computers and debris began to rain down from the fifth-floor office where the siege was taking place - and Twilight star Campbell Bowerwas among those caught up in the drama.


In a series of posts on Twitter.com, Campbell Bower writes, "At TCR (Tottenham Court Road). Just saw what looked like more office equipment coming from window. Police line stopped me from getting closer."


The siege ended after approximately three hours. A 50-year-old man was arrested.
