The theme park Disneyland Paris was in the process of being evacuated on Saturday morning due to a security alert, according to reports. Guests have been told to stay in their rooms as armed police head to the park. The latest reports suggest it may be a false alarm.

Reports in the French media on Saturday said the Disneyland theme park to the east of Paris was being evacuated over a security alert.

Le Parisien reported that armed police were being sent to the scene with some staying at the park's hotels reporting that they had been asked to stay in their rooms.

It is not clear what has caused the security alert, with some rumours going around Twitter that police were hunting a reported gunman in of the hotels, although we have had not official confirmation of this.

France TV info have since reported that it may be a false alarm at the park. That appears to be the case with guests reporting they were then free to leave their rooms.

The alert comes after three days of terrorist attacks that have left Paris and France as a whole on edge and in fear of further violence.

During that time there has been a series of false alarms, whether on public transport or at sites like the Trocadero, which was evacuated after false rumours that a gunman was on the loose.

The government announced on Saturday that an extra 500 soldiers would patrol the streets of Paris on Saturday.
