The Metropolitan Police sent out a bomb disposal robot right outside its Scotland Yard base after a suspect package was reported.
The package turned out to be a rucksack left behind by someone getting into a taxi.
St James’s Park Tube station was closed between 9.45 and 10.20am while police responded to the incident.
