A suspicious package has prompted the evacuation of Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews’ electorate office in Melbourne’s southeast.

Emergency services were called to the Noble Park office on Wednesday afternoon following the discovery of the package.

“Safety checks are in the process of being conducted, with the building evacuated as a precaution,” Victoria Police said in a statement.

“There is no threat to the community and no one has been injured.”
