    Earlier in the day, the Met Police confirmed that the south London High Street had been put on lockdown amid reports of a suspicious vehicle found in the area.

    The police have issued a statement saying that they have reopened roads in Brixton after an abandoned car near the local police station was declared non-suspicious.

    ​Earlier in the day, the Met police stated via Twitter that they arrived at the scene at around 8:20 pm over reports of an abandoned car near Brixton's police station. 

    ​Following the police report, a spokesman for Victoria Line stated that train didn't stop at the Brixton station as well.
