Moorgate reopened after suspicious package fears

Parts of Moorgate have been reopened to the public after being locked down this morning while the police investigated a suspicious package.

Authorities carried out a floor-by-floor search of a building near the Coleman Street junction at Moorgate Station.

The alert comes at a time of heightened tensions over a possible attack.

Terrorist threat levels were raised in the capital and across Europe last week, following the murders of 17 people by Islamist gunmen in Paris last week.

Members of London’s Jewish community have expressed fears about future attacks. The Chief Rabbi of the United Synagogue, warned that ‘hate has gone global’.

The Met Police have said they are listening to concerns from within the Jewish communities as well as those from wider London.

More patrols are being provided in key areas of the city.
