LONDON — The police evacuated crowds and cordoned off Trafalgar Square on Saturday morning, rattling the British capital on the third day of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Metropolitan Police did not specify what had prompted the evacuation, but said in a tweet that officers were currently at the scene in the square, which lies at the opposite end of the Mall from Buckingham Palace, where there is a large concert scheduled for Saturday evening.

A few minutes later, the police tweeted that the “incident has now been concluded” and that they would reopen the square “in due course.” There were no further details of the nature of the incident immediately available on Saturday morning.
