All shops were reopened to the public by 6.50pm. One eyewitness, who asked not to be named, said: "A woman was in the Samsung shop and pulled out a knife and wouldn't put it away so they called security who called the police.

"She was escorted away and Pandora and Samsung were closed for a little while. I don't think she meant any harm but you can't just get a knife out in a shop."

Police have said there is no wider threat to the public.
