Two people were taken in yesterday and later discharged after an odd liquid was discovered in Labour MP Mohammad Yasin's office - but it was later found to be not hazardous.

Two people were taken to a London hospital Monday afternoon in a "precautionary" measure after a suspicious package was received at a British MP's office at Westminster Palace. "We can not provide any more details at this stage", a parliamentary spokesperson said in a statement.

Specialist police officers investigated the package and found it was not hazardous, a parliamentary spokeswoman later said.

Police said they had investigated reports of a suspicious package at the Norman Shaw Buildings on Monday, where many members of parliament have their offices on the parliamentary estate. "The police are investigating the content of the letters to identify any potential links".

London Ambulance Service said it had attended the scene and taken a man and a woman to a nearby hospital as "precaution".

And in response to the incidents, parliamentary authorities have now emailed all staff to be on the alert for suspicious items of mail. There has been no evacuation, but the affected area has been cordoned off. Access to the building is otherwise unaffected.

It is thought the package was linked to the sick "Punish a Muslim Day" after letters were sent to Muslim families in East London and the Midlands last month.
