Police investigate 'suspicious package' and possible explosion in Westminster

LONDON — The Metropolitan Police are investigating a “suspicious package” in Westminster, The Sun reports, the day after a terrorist attack killed four people and injured dozens nearby in the British capital.

There were reportedly “loud bangs” heard after the Police began to investigate. It’s not clear if a controlled demolition was carried out.

Reports are confused as to whether explosions were heard or not, according to The Daily Mail:

Witnesses reported the explosion at 8.30pm tonight and police confirmed that they had found a package near Buckingham Palace.

A Met Police spokesman claimed that no explosion has taken place on Birdcage Walk, near where mourners have gathered for a vigil in Trafalgar Square.
