Personnel in the Prime Minister's Office on the eighth floor of the Beehive are back at work following a white powder scare.

Four people, including a security guard, were decontaminated after an unknown white powder was sent in an envelope on Wednesday.

No one is thought to have become ill.

Tests to identify the powder are being carried out.
