    A railway station in central Berlin has been evacuated following the discovery of a suspicious package, police have stated.

    The package was found on the first platform at the Ostbahnhof station at around 11:10 local time. The S-Bahn regional and long-distance platforms have been blocked off while special forces examine the object. Trains are still allowed to pass through the station, but without permission to stop.

    It's all clear now; the package wasn't dangerous, local police inform.

    The incident has been resolved and the train station has resumed its usual regime.
