Err what happened this afternoon on Southwark street. Did they think there was a car bomb?

It was all still taped off when I passed on the bus at 5:30pm, police everywhere.

Yes, they thought there was a car bomb.

This is based on having been leaving the office (just round the corner) at just after 6pm, and as I got to the police tape, I heard a police officer telling other pedestrians, "No, we're finished now. We've decided the car isn't going to blow up". They then removed the cordons.
