London (dpa) - A "suspicious package" containing white powder that prompted a police investigation after it was delivered to an office in the British parliament in London was found to not be harmful.

The Metropolitan Police said officers were informed around midday Tuesday of "a suspicious package that had been delivered to an office within the Palace of Westminster" - the estate which includes both houses of parliament and related buildings in central London.

The letter contained a white powder, which was "assessed by specialists and found not to be noxious," the force said following an investigation conducted by counter-terrorism officers.

The office where the powder was found remained closed, but the rest of parliament was open, police said.
