A police investigation into reports of a suspicious package closed off Horns Road in Newbury Park today.
Officers attended the B&Q carpark at around 4pm and carried out a controlled explosion. They then deemed it as a false alarm, according to a Metropolitan Police spokesman.
Traffic, including bus route 169, was diverted while officers carried out their checks.
The road was reopened at around 6pm.
Doors smashed in with sledgehammers, armed teenagers cutting through CCTV wires and homeowners buying metal grilles to protect their property – this was life on the Jaffe Estate in 2010.
