An armed man has been arrested by the RCMP after accessing the Rideau Hall grounds where Prime Minister Trudeau and Gov. Gen Julie Payette reside.

The man accessed the grounds at about 6:40 a.m. on Thursday morning, said RCMP. He was then arrested and placed in custody and charges are pending.

The grounds were not occupied by the Prime Minister or the Governor General at the time.

Police closed down part of Sussex Drive close to Rideau Hall on Thursday morning to investigate the incident.

"We thank the RCMP and police for quickly resolving the situation this morning at Rideau Hall. All of our staff are safe," Governor General Julie Payette said in a tweet.

Sussex drive was reopened shortly after 9 a.m.
