LONDON, May 1 (Reuters) - Police carried out a controlled explosion in the Canary Wharf financial district of east London after a suspicious package was found near the Barclays headquarters, a security official said.

Canary Wharf Group, which runs the property estate, said police were maintaining a cordon around the area until they deem the area is safe, according to a memo circulated and seen by Reuters. (Reporting by Reuters staff; Editing by Alexander Smith)
