Police in New York detain man in connection with an explosion near Times Square

Police in New York have detained a man in connection with an explosion near Times Square.

A number of subway trains had to be evacuated in the central Manhattan area earlier as a precaution. No one was injured other than the suspect. The NYPD is still appealing to people to still avoid the area.

Sky’s Hannah Thomas Peter is in the city, and says it appears to have happened at the Port Authority bus station – one of New York’s main terminals.
