Special forces have allegedly been seen on the ground in Place Meiser in the Schaerbeek district of the city.

The search in Schaarbeek is part of an ongoing investigation following the tragic bombing attacks which killed at least 31 people and wounded 316 on Tuesday.

Alice Chemin wrote on Twitter: Something’s happening in #Meiser #Schaerbeek. Heard two (small) explosions. Square totally secured.”

Another added: “Evacuation of the Place Meiser, a bomb disposal robot is being used!”

There were reports a tram was stopped and was evacuated, as police then increased the cordon to the entire square.

A bomb disposal robot has also been seen being sent into the scene.

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism. Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV. He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
