LONDON (AA) – A central bridge in London has been closed on Friday as police cordoned the area after the discovery of a suspicious "abandoned" car, according to a police statement.

"Police are in attendance in Vauxhall Bridge […] after a vehicle was found abandoned just before 4 p.m. [1600GMT]," Lambeth Police said on Twitter.

People have been asked to leave the area for around two hours since the situation came under attention, but a later statement said the car, with its flash lights left on, was not suspicious.

The abandoned vehicle was "examined by specialist officers as a precaution," police said and the bridge was due to open soon.

No arrests have been made, according to the statement.
