(Updates with item deemed non-suspicious)
LONDON, Jan 19 (Reuters) - Police investigating a package which briefly sparked a security alert near London’s Kings Cross railway station on Friday said the item was non-suspicious and that cordons were being lifted.
“Police were dealing with a suspicious package in Pentonville Road/Caledonian Road, #KingsCross. The package has been deemed non-suspicious & cordons now being removed,” local police said on Twitter.
A police spokesman had earlier said that roads had been shut near Kings Cross, but the station itself was not closed during the incident. (Reporting by Kate Holton and Alistair Smout; editing by Stephen Addison)
