A suspect device was found in London's city centre this morning - bringing traffic to a halt.

British police investigating the suspect device later found it to pose no danger.

Traffic was briefly stopped around parliament, which is close to Prime Minister David Cameron's residence in Downing Street, after the device was found near an X-ray machine near one of the entrances.

"It has been stood down," a police spokeswoman said of the alert.
