About 100 people were visiting the cathedral at the time of the incident and had been evacuated by staff by the time two police officers arrived at the scene.

The 19th Century cathedral is located in the centre of Berlin on the historic Museum Island.

Police put a stop to a man waving a knife and going on a "rampage" at a Berlin cathedral by shooting him in the legs.
