LONDON, England (Reuters) -- A letter bomb exploded at a London office on Monday, injuring one woman employee, police said.

Police said the area in Victoria Street in central London was cordoned off after they received reports of a suspicious package.

"A female employee was taken to hospital. There was an explosion and she was taken to hospital as a result," a Scotland Yard spokeswoman told Reuters.

"Our crews treated a female patient for minor injuries and conveyed her to hospital," a London ambulance spokesman said

"Fire crews have implemented a 50 metre exclusion zone and we're standing by," a Fire Brigade official said.
