London’s Kings Cross station was cordoned off on Friday morning amid reports of a suspicious package. Roads were shut near the station and dog units are at the scene.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said they were called to reports of a suspicious package on the corner of Pentonville Road and Caledonian Road at 9.18am local time.

British Transport Police (BTP) say cordons have now been removed. The package was deemed “non-suspicious.”

Metropolitan police and dog units scoured the area as they investigated the incident at one of London’s busiest stations.

People were reportedly been told to stay away from windows.
