British police investigating suspect package amid reports of controlled explosion

LONDON, March 23 (Reuters) - British police were investigating a suspicious package found near Westminster on Thursday evening and some media reported officers had carried out a controlled explosion.

A spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police said they were investigating a suspicious package found on a road just up from where a man killed three people in an attack near parliament on Wednesday.

The spokesman declined to comment on a report carried by Sky News and others that police had carried out a controlled explosion on the package. (Reporting by Kate Holton; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
