    The closure followed the discovery of a suspicious item in the area, the City of Westminster's Police Twitter account says.

    According to The Telegraph, the police are not letting people in or out of the Prime Minister's offices at Downing Street due to the incident.

    Earlier on Thursday, it was reported that Theresa May was due to meet her cabinet ministers for further discussions on the Brexit deal.

    Moments later, the police informed the public that the roads will be reopened soon:
