Sydney’s Town Hall busy train station was evacuated on Wednesday morning amid reports of a suspicious package.

The nearby St Andrew’s Cathedral School was also put into into lockdown as police swept the station.

“SACS is in partial lockdown due to a suspicious package found at Town Hall station,” the school said in a text message to parents.

“We will advise when given police clearance.”

City commuters were advised to catch buses instead.

NSW Police confirmed at 11.40am that a police operation was underway at the rail station after an earlier emergency call.

The reason behind the operation was not clear but there were multiple reports of a “suspicious package” and “verbal threats”.
