Reports of a suspicious package outside London Liverpool Street Station led to a lockdown on Thursday morning. Police soon stood down the incident, however, when the threatening item turned out to be a 'Deliveroo' bag.

A City of London police officer told City AM that a suspicious package was reported shortly after 10:00 GMT.

As a result the surrounding area was locked down while the situation was assessed by police.

Traffic was soon moving again, however, when officers found the suspect package was merely a bag belonging to delivery firm 'Deliveroo'.
