Two taken to hospital after suspicious substance found at British parliament

Suspicious package sent to Muslim MP at Parliament 'linked to Punish a Muslim Day'

Last month, United Kingdom home secretary Amber Rudd had white powder sent to her office in Parliament which was also assessed and found to be not risky.

A man and a woman were yesterday taken for treatment yesterday before those packages were found to be harmless.

It comes less than 24 hours after two were taken to hospital as a precaution in a separate situation involving suspicious items found in Parliament.

Staff alerted police and paramedics, but the substance was found not to be hazardous.

Henry Zeffman, political reporter at The Times, tweeted that the package is understood to have been sent to Rupa Huq, MP for Ealing Central, prompting offices to be evacuated. "The police are investigating the content of the letters to identify any potential link".


Police said they were investigating reports of a suspicious package at the Norman Shaw Buildings, where many lawmakers have their offices, on the parliamentary estate.

The package was later described as a letter which contained a white powder, which has been assessed by specialists and found not to be noxious, the Metropolitan Police said. "No reported injuries. Enquiries continue". A second package is also being looked at, they said - and one person has been taken to hospital this morning.

"The substance contained in it was deemed not to be hazardous to health", a Met police spokesman said on Monday.

Cops were scrambled to an incident at Westminster this morning just hours after a similar one rocked the United Kingdom government headquarters.
