London's Angel station reopens after suspect package scare

LONDON (Reuters) - British police said they carried out a controlled explosion on a suspect package near London’s Angel underground station on Wednesday before allowing the station to reopen.

Earlier, London’s transport authority said the station was closed while authorities responded to a security alert outside.

Britain is on its second-highest level of security alert after several attacks in the country in recent months.
