Second controlled explosion to be carried out in Bristol, United Kingdom

Saturday, April 19, 2008

A second controlled explosion is expected to be carried out in Bristol, United Kingdom later today. Police have said that this is because of the finding of a second suspicious object.

Avon and Somerset Police released a statement on this development:

As a result of further investigations at that location, a suspicious substance was discovered.

The EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) were called in and have decided that the most appropriate course of action is to conduct a controlled explosion which is likely to happen within the next few hours.

This move comes after Avon and Somerset police arrested a man in the Westbury on Trym area of the city on suspicion of terrorism.
