London - Police say they are investigating reports of a break-in at an office inside Britain's Parliament buildings.

The Press Association news agency says the incident took place at offices used by Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, though not his personal office.

The agency said on Saturday that a member of staff had found a door forced open, but it was unclear whether anything had been stolen.

The Metropolitan Police said officers were called just before 19:00 (15:00 EDT) on Friday to reports of "alleged forced entry to an office in the Palace of Westminster".

Labour, Britain's main opposition party, said it could not comment on a police investigation.
