A Eurostar station in northern France was temporarily evacuated after a bomb threat this morning.

An alert was sounded at the railway station in Lille after a suspicious package was found. 

Passengers were seen streaming out of the station in northern France around 9am local time (8:00am GMT). 

According to The Sun, the station has now reopened after the authorities swept the area, which Twitter users appear to have confirmed.

At the moment, it is unclear what exactly was discovered in the station.
