Trains and buses in central Stockholm cancelled
Public transport in much of central Stockholm was cancelled following the attack.
Buses in the inner city have been taken out of service and the subway network was also closed for hours. Long traffic jams have formed on the roads to and from the city centre.
Commuter trains are now running again, theoretically, but are stuck behind national trains which are not yet moving again. The metro system has also reopened, but traffic is irregular.
Stockholm City Council has opened buildings in the centre of the city for those unable to get home. Some Stockholmers have also offered a place to stay for those stranded in the city via the hashtag #openstockholm on social media.
Many shops, restaurants and shopping centres were closed shortly after the attack, under the advice of the police, and many theatres and cinemas in the area have also said they will be cancelling tonight's performances.
Police have advised residents to walk home, rather than taking public transport.
