Charnwood Borough Council has confirmed the discovery of an unknown substance in an envelope earlier today is harmless and is thought to be baking powder.

The incident caused a large scale evacuation of staff at the Leicestershire based offices as fire crews and the police attended the scene and launched an investigation.

In a tweet this afternoon the council confirmed the offices have now re-opened.
