Central London street closed in UK security alert

LONDON, May 16 (Reuters) - A central London avenue near Buckingham Palace was closed in a security alert on Monday on the eve of a visit to Ireland by Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and a week before U.S. President Barack Obama visits Britain.

In a separate incident, police carried out a controlled explosion to destroy a suspicious bag in a central London street, although it turned out to be harmless, a police spokesman said. (Reporting by Adrian Croft; Editing by Keith Weir)
