British police said they were investigating a suspicious package near the defense ministry on Wednesday, and had closed roads while they dealt with the incident.

A Reuters photographer saw a bomb disposal robot at the scene after police said they were investigating the package at Embankment Gardens, near the Ministry of Defense, to the north of the Houses of Parliament.
“Police were called ... to reports of a suspicious package at Embankment Gardens,” a police spokesman said in a statement, adding that the ambulance and fire services were also at the scene. “Cordons and road closures have been put in place.”

A police spokeswoman subsequently said: “A controlled explosion was carried out. The incident has been stood down and the package has been deemed non-suspicious.”
