Police say a suspicious package that was located in a Dunedin building is not of concern.

The package was located this morning at 100 Stuart Street and reported to police just after 10.15am.

Cordons were initially put in place within a section of the street as a precaution.

People inside the building, including a retail business on the ground floor, were evacuated.

New Zealand Defense Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team members completed an examination of it, and it was found to contain items that were not of concern.

Cordons have since been stood down. The occupiers of the building were allowed to go back.

An investigation into the circumstances of this incident is ongoing.
