Bomb Squad Called To Leighton Buzzard
The centre of Leighton Buzzard was shut down today and the bomb squad called in, after someone found a suspicious package first thing this morning.
Police first got called out to the area at 8:10 this morning (Feb 26th).
They set up a cordon and called the explosive ordnance disposal team.
It meant shops throughout Hockliffe Street and North Street had to be evacuated.

Then, at around 10:30 police warned people in the area to cover their ears, for a controlled explosion.
Around another hour or so later, and people were allowed back into their shops.
"Following examination, the item was found to pose no threat and is no longer being treated as suspicious."
Both robberies happened within 20 minutes of each other on Wednesday night.
