Art school student sparks London terror alert by leaving bomb-like 'project' backpack trailing wires at college reception.
Police terror response vehicles - already on high alert prior to the London 2012 Olympic games - rushed to the scene and evacuated the building while the surrounding streets were blocked off.
Once it was established the backpack was a hoax, the student - named as Young Choo - was given a stern talking to by police.
Young Choo - an American 'summer study abroad' student - said she left the package as part of the project titled 'Intervention' before going to have lunch.
The convincing 'bomb' consisted of a black rucksack wrapped in red tape and featured a canister and trailing wires.
