Bomb scare in Brookenby



Have your say

Police were called to a house in Brookenby on Monday (February 3) after a resident found a small torpedo-shaped item buried deep in their garden in Edinburgh Road. The police were called at 1:39pm.

The road was closed as a precautionary measure and police liaised with NPower and the EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), who were expected to attend the scene.

However, the investigation was called off after the item was confirmed to be a breaker joint, an electrical item which is part of the electrical feed to local houses. The EOD visit was cancelled and the road was re-opened shortly afterwards.
