British police said Tuesday they had opened an investigation into a package containing uranium seized at London’s Heathrow Airport. Border agents discovered the package during a routine search on December 29, police said.

According to The Sun report, the package had originated in Pakistan and arrived on a flight from Oman.

The uranium was found in a shipment of scrap metal, and investigators were investigating whether it resulted from “poor handling” in Pakistan.

Police commander Richard Smith said in a report to British media, “I want to reassure the public that the amount of contaminated material was extremely small and has been assessed by experts as posing no threat to the public.”
