Police cordoned off a road on the University of Sheffield campus.

The area on Mapping Street and Porobello was blocked off by officers in the last hour.

A call was made to South Yorkshire Police to report 'suspicious activity' and the St George's Library was evacuated.

A police spokesman said: "We received the call and attended the campus off Mappin Street to reports of suspicious activity.

"We evacuated the building as a precaution but there was no concerns surrounding the reports. The call was made with good intentions."

The police cordon has now been lifted.

Police are on the scene at Mappin Street and Portobello
