A SUSPICIOUS package was delivered to the constituency office of MP Grant Shapps this morning (Tuesday).

The package was delivered to Maynard House, in The Common, Hatfield and raised concerns among Mr Shapps' staff due to "bizarre" writing on the front.

Police were called and a spokeswoman for the force confirmed that the package was not dangerous.
