Reports are coming in that a suicide bomber has set off a pipe bomb in the Port Authority bus terminal in Manhattan just now.

It is understood that the suspected bomber had a pipe bomb which he was able to detonate and was wearing a bomb vest.

Police reports confirm multiple injuries at this point but details are still sketchy.

As you can see from the first videos which are appearing on social media, New York first responders are currently flooding the scene.

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio has been informed of the situation.

President Donald Trump "has been briefed on the explosion in New York City", his press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed.

Mr. Andre Rodriguez, 62 years-old, said he heard an explosion shortly before 7.30am: "I was going through the turnstile. It sounded like an explosion, and everybody started running."
