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. 

Police say:  

"Following examination, the item was found to pose no threat and is no longer being treated as suspicious."
