Daily Mail Offices Evacuated after ‘Suspicious White Powder’ Discovered

Daily Mail UK staff received a scare early this morning when the offices were told to evacuate due to a “suspicious powder”.

The offices of the Daily Mail were evacuated after a suspicious white powder was sent to the newspaper, according to reports.

The paper’s entertainment columnist Baz Bambigoye tweeted that staff were “told to leave the editorial floor” after the package was opened.

Journalists were ordered to evacuate their offices in High Street Kensington just after 12.30pm today.

Police were dispatched to Northcliffe House with pictures posted from the scene showing an officer stationed outside the building.

No injuries were reported and the substance was deemed non-suspicious after being tested by detectives, according to Scotland Yard.

A spokeswoman had earlier said: “Police were called at 12.20pm on Monday, November 14 to reports of a suspicious package at a building in Kensington High Street.

“Borough officers from Kensington and Chelsea, supported by specialist Met officers, are currently in attendance.

“A limited evacuation has taken place in one area of the building. Inquiries continue.”

The Mail shares the offices with the Evening Standard, Metro and The Independent.

Thankfully no one was hurt and it will be back to business as usual. It still shows how on edge our world really is these days.
