Police reopen roads after ‘suspicious package’ found

The City of London Police have reopened roads near Bank Station after resolving an incident regarding a “suspicious package”.

Queen Victoria Street, Queen Street and Princes Street were among those roads closed this morning after reports of an unattended item at Mansion House.

The area also includes the City of London Magistrates’ Court and several major banks.

Bank Station was also temporarily shut, with office workers nearby unable to enter their buildings until noon.

Just before midday, the police said the incident had been resolved and cordons were in the process of being lifted.

Transport for London said Bank station was “closed due to a security alert at street level” but Monument Station was not affected.

Chief Inspector Nikki Gander, from the City of London Police, said: “Officers were called to a report of a suspicious package near Mansion House at 10.06am this morning. This is currently being investigated and precautionary cordons and road closures have been put in place.”

The incident comes a day after police were forced to close roads around Cannon Street Station, when a man climbed onto the roof of Starbucks on Wallbrook and threw rocks.
