Mail and Metro offices evacuated over suspicious package


THE London offices of the Metro and Daily Mail were evacuated after a suspicious package containing an unidentified white powder was sent to the Mail’s editorial room.

Police were called to the Northcliffe House offices in Kensington early on Monday afternoon. The building also houses the Independent and London Live TV Station but only the Mail and the Metro were affected.

There were no injuries or arrests and Metropolitan police soon confirmed there was no threat. 


The incident comes four months after a letter containing white powder was sent to the Westminster office of Lord Ahmed, sparking a security alert, and on the opening day of the trial of the killer of former MP Jo Cox.
