Cambridge: University Bomb Threats

17 May 2012, 12:29

There have been three bomb threats in as many days at Cambridge University buildings.

King's College was evacuated this morning (Thursday) after an email warning that a device had been left was forwarded to staff.

The alarm was raised at 9:05am and staff and students were evacuated while security staff searched the college buildings.

Nothing was found and staff and students were allowed back inside 45 minutes later.

It follows similar hoaxes at Clare College on Wednesday and at the Cambridge University Student's Union on Free School Lane on Tuesday.

Nothing suspicious was found on either occasion.

Cambridgeshire Police are investigating whether the bomb threats are linked to a recent series of similar hoaxes at schools, colleges and universities across the country.
