LONDON: British police said an item in London's Whitehall area has been found to be non-suspicious after they closed streets around Prime Minister Theresa May's residence in order to check it earlier on Thursday (May 23).

"Happy to update the item concerned has now been fully assessed and deemed non-suspicious. Roads will be reopened shortly," London police said on Twitter.

The roads were closed around noon.

Members of the public were kept away from the area while police carried out their checks.

About 40 minutes after their earlier tweet, police said the item was "non-suspicious".

"Roads will be reopened shortly. Thanks again for your patience and cooperation," police wrote.
