Bomb disposal experts have carried out a controlled explosion on what was believed to be a suspicious package at Manchester's main rail station.
Manchester Piccadilly was evacuated on Saturday afternoon after luggage left on a train sparked a security alert.
A cordon was set up around the station and all adjacent and surrounding roads were closed. Train services into Piccadilly were temporarily suspended.
Tram and bus services into the station were also disrupted by the alert.
The Army's bomb disposal team from Chester carried out the explosion.
