LONDON — Police in London say two people have been taken to hospital as a precaution after a suspicious package was found at Britain’s Parliament complex.

The Metropolitan Police force said officers were called Monday about a package at the Norman Shaw Buildings, which are near the Houses of Parliament and contain lawmakers’ offices.

The force says a man and woman have been taken to a hospital as a precaution, and police are investigating.

Last month, a package containing white powder was sent to an office in Parliament. Tests found the powder was not harmful.
