LONDON (REUTERS) - London police said on Tuesday (Dec 5) that St Paul's underground station is now fully open and trains are stopping as normal, after the transport authority closed the station earlier as police responded to a security alert in the area.

Police later said, however, a package in a building near St Paul's Cathedral is deemed  non-suspicious.
