London Bridge station in central London reopened on Wednesday afternoon after being evacuated while police investigated reports of a suspicious item on board a train, a Reuters witness said.
Police were called to the busy passenger hub at 11:33 am GMT, after reports of a suspicious item on board a train, a British Transport Police spokeswoman said.
The station was closed as a precaution while expert officials assessed the item.
Train operators Southern and Southeastern said on Twitter that trains did not stop at the station.
“All lines are expected to be reopened shortly after emergency services deal with an incident at London Bridge,” Southern said in a statement.
