Harold Wood station and the nearby area was cordoned off earlier this morning after what was believed to be the discovery of a WW2 ordnance found during build works.
The incident happened at 10.45 am as multiple emergency vehicles were seen lining the nearby streets in Harold Wood.
A spokesperson for the Met told the Havering Daily:
“We were called at 10:45hrs after the discovery of suspected WW2 ordnance during building works.
“However it has now been fully stood down as experts have found it is not ordnance.”
