Police in London briefly cordoned off parts of the Finchley Central area on Thursday after a suspicious van was reported parked next to the building where the Jewish Agency for Israel has offices.

Workers were evacuated from nearby buildings and Ballards Lane was blocked in both directions.

Finchley Central underground station was also closed off for a “security check.”

Police gave the all-clear some 30 minutes later.

The Community Service Trust (CST), which deals with Jewish community security, was in touch with London’s Metropolitan Police throughout the incident.
