Kings Cross station briefly closed due to 'suspicious package'

Kings Cross station briefly closed due to 'suspicious package'
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.
