Bomb disposal experts called to Ipswich

BOMB squad officers were called to Lower Brook Street in Ipswich this morning.

BOMB squad officers were called to Customs House in Lower Brook Street in Ipswich today after a suspicious package was found in the mail room.

A bomb disposal vehicle arrived just after 11.30am and the building was evacuated.

However, within 15 minutes officers had declared the package as being safe. It turned out to be a mobile phone charger.

Staff Sergeant Gary Hale, from 621 EOD Squadron, said: “Once the package was ex-rayed it turned out not to be a suspicious package, it was a normal item sent through the post. But they did the right thing by calling us.”
