A man has opened fire at the Fields mall in Copenhagen, the Danish capital. British singer Harry Styles was due to perform at 8pm local team (6pm BST) at Royal Arena less than a mile from the mall. It is unclear if the concert will go on.
Police reinforcements have been deployed around the large Field’s mall between the city centre and the airport, advising people inside the centre to stay put and await police assistance.
