I walked past at around noon, SR was blocked off between the HSBC/Southwark Tavern and Redcross Way. There was indeed a suspect package according to the policeman I spoke with, but BM was business as usual and the 4 or 5 police officers involved were very relaxed. I don't hear anything about a controlled explosion.
