LONDON (Reuters) - A London underground station reopened on Thursday after it was evacuated in a security alert over a suspect package, travel authority Transport for London said.
Baker Street station, close to a number of tourist attractions such as a Madame Tussauds museum, was closed for about an hour while police were called and no trains were stopping, leading to delays on the subway system.
"The station was closed as a precaution whilst specialist officers attended and assessed the scene," British Transport Police said.
