Bomb Squad Swoops Following Reports Of “Suspicious Package”

Police have rushed to an Edinburgh street after a “suspicious item” was reported to have been seen. Bomb squad officers arrived to a property near the Sighthill Bowling Club in Wester Hailes in south west Edinburgh.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “Police were called to a disused property in Sighthill Loan at around 7.45pm on Wednesday after a few suspicious items were found. A cordon was put in place while officers removed the items.”

The scare comes two days after Euston station was evacuated after commuters spotted smoke coming from a bag on the concourse. But the vapour turned out to have come from an e-cigarette and the station re-opened shortly afterwards.
