LONDON (Reuters) - Police in London on Tuesday said road closures and cordons had been lifted in Westminster, Britain's political district around parliament, after dealing with a suspicious package.

Police were called earlier on Tuesday to investigate a suspicious package found at Parliament Street, London's Metropolitan Police said.

"The item was found to be non suspicious," City of Westminster Police said in a tweet.
