Two people were taken to hospital as a precaution as detectives investigated a suspect package at Britain's parliament, police said in a statement. A second package is also being looked at, they said - and one person has been taken to hospital this morning.

A Metropolitan police spokesman said: "Police were called at 9.49am on Tuesday 13 March to reports of a suspicious package at Norman Shaw Buildings, Victoria Embankment, Westminster".

A parliamentary spokesman confirmed four packages had been sent to the building in recent days and said police were investigating the latest package. We can not provide any more details at this stage. Tests found the powder was not harmful.

"Police are investigating the content of the letters to identify any potential links".

And in response to the incidents, parliamentary authorities have now emailed all staff to be on the alert for suspicious items of mail.

The office of opposition Labour MP Mohammad Yasin received the item, while he was not in the room, according to a member of his staff.

Police say they were called to the scene just before 1pm local time. The London Ambulance Service is on scene.

London Ambulance Service said they had initially dispatched a hazardous area response team and after assessing two people at the scene, chose to take them to hospital.

The two people who were taken to hospital yesterday were discharged.
