Kensington High Street was on lockdown for around an hour and a half tonight, as police investigated a suspect package.
Restaurants and shops were evacuated after a suspicious item was found near Kensington Court at around 6.30pm.
Reports suggest the package was found in a restaurant.
The item turned out not to be dangerous and the road was reopened at around 8pm.
Thank you for your patience whilst we dealt with an unattended bag left in a restaurant on #Kensington High St. Found to be non-suspicious.
A315 High Street Kensington / A4204 Kensington Church Street - re-open, having earlier been closed due to a police incident.

A new service which gives perpetrators of domestic abuse a chance to seek help has been launched this week.
The initiative, called Stepping Up, allows adults who recognise they are using physical or emotional abuse within their relationships to refer themselves to the service to receive a tailored package of support.
At the same time, the perpetrator's current or ex-partner will be offered support from a dedicated worker.
There are perpetrators who do acknowledge their abusive behaviour and want to do something about it.
Through early intervention, we can work with them to facilitate change while supporting their partners and children.
By taking this dual approach, our programme will help victims today and hopefully reduce the number of victims tomorrow.
Find out more information about the scheme here.
