    Elephant and Castle is an area around a major road junction in southeast London with modern developments like the Strata tower, nicknamed the "Razor".

    Elephant and Castle area of southeast London has been reopened for the public after police cleared a vehicle as non-suspicious.

    "(The) incident has been stood down," a police spokeswoman said.

    The area was cordoned off earlier in the day as the police were investigating the contents of a suspicious car.

    London's Bakerloo underground train line was suspended between Elephant & Castle and Lambeth North amid the operation, while a shopping centre in the nearby area was reportedly been shut.

    Twitter users reported that other buildings close to the scene of the operation had been evacuated.
