LONDON (REUTERS) – British police reopened London’s Victoria Coach Station and the surrounding streets on Tuesday (May 23) after earlier closing the area due to a suspect package.

“The reported suspect package at Victoria Coach Station has now been cleared. Not suspicious. Thanks for your patience,”
London’s Metropolitan Police said on Twitter.

The evacuation came after a suspected terrorist attack at a concert in the northern English city of Manchester on Monday, where the US singer Ariana Grande had been performing.

That attack killed at least 22 people, including children, and injured 59 others.
