Police have cordoned off a property in Clayhall following reports of a suspect package.
The package is thought to have been found in Clayhall Avenue this afternoon, between Woodford Avenue and Marlands Road.
Sunita Parmer, 47, who lives on the road, said: “I was just coming home from shopping and the police told me there was a big issue and I couldn’t go back to my house.
“It was very scary. The police still haven’t told us what happened.”
Four police cars, five ambulances and four fire engines were at the scene.
The road has now been reopened.
