Authorities confirmed the small unknown package at SBS Sydney headquarters contained non-hazardous material.

SBS says there were no evacuations.

Authorities were called to the offices of the public broadcaster in Sydney to determine the contents of a small unknown package.

An email was sent to staff informing them that a “small unknown substance in a package” was dropped off at reception but “for now, it’s business as usual”.

The front foyer and reception area was blocked off as a precaution but has since been re-opened.
