LONDON (Reuters) - Two suspicious packages sent to Britain’s parliament have been found not to be hazardous after a police investigation, a spokesman for the parliament said on Tuesday.
“Two items of mail containing suspicious substances were investigated by the Met Police and (were) found not to be hazardous,” parliament said in a statement.
“The affected areas were temporarily cordoned off but no evacuation was necessary. One person attended hospital as a precaution.”
