It is not known what caused the alarm to be raised.

Sales director Jonathan Cook, 45, was working through nearby when he heard a bang.

He told The Independent it was around the same volume as a shotgun.

“I was walking south towards Angel when I saw the police had cordoned it off,” Mr Cook said.

“I tried to walk around it but it seemed like it formed about a half mile radius around the station.

“I saw eight to nine police cars and three, fire engines – the firefighters were in full kit.

“I heard a bang but I wouldn’t say it was a big one.”

A tweet sent by the Metropolitan Police said: “We were dealing with a suspect package in Islington.

“A controlled explosion was carried out, and the incident was stood down at 19.34hrs.”

It comes less than a month after 30 people were hurt in a bombing at Parsons Green tube station in west London.

Police said the device failed to detonate properly.
