At a glance

  • The NYPD evacuated the World Trade Center station in New York City on Tuesday afternoon after a ‘suspicious package’ was found in the building.
  • Cops put out an urgent warning just before 3.30 pm urging people to keep clear of The Oculus because of the package – which they now believe is a pressure cooker.
  • It’s believed the cooker was left in the last car of a PATH train from Newark in New Jersey, which sat at the station for over an hour before it was found. But at 4 pm, police gave the all-clear that the issue was not bomb related.
