The man, who identified himself as Michael Green, strapped gas canisters to his back before entering the office of an HGV firm on Tottenham Court Road, according to witnesses.

He is understood to have taken four hostages inside Shropshire House, amid claims he had failed a HGV training course and wanted his money back.

Officers, including explosives experts and police negotiators, sealed off the block as the man begun hurling objects including computers and filing cabinets from a fifth floor window and threatened to blow himself up.
