Unlike past incidents, police said there was no need to evacuate staff on this occasion and crews have now determined that the 'suspicious package' in fact contains harmless coffee grounds.

Despite the harmless nature of the package on this occasions, the emergency services take all calls of this type seriously and would always encourage members of the public to report any suspicious activity or items via 101.
