Bomb disposal experts rush to ‘suspect package’ left at County Hall

Bomb disposal experts rush to ‘suspect package’ left at County Hall

Parts of County Hall were evacuated yesterday after a suspect package was left at reception.

Bomb disposal experts were dispatched from Hereford to deal with the offending article, which I understand was a box left on the counter by a member of the public at around 12.30pm.

The incident was concluded by mid-afternoon, and the Western Telegraph has today reported that a 50 year old woman was arrested following the incident.

A few people have asked me if I know what was in the box and who it was intended for. All I can confirm is that the contents were soft and brown.

    People shouldn’t leave Mars Bars as gifts for councillors:

    1. They could be misconstrued as an inducement or bribe.

    2. They melt in this hot weather.


  • You’ve dragged a bit more detail out of me, PR:

    It wasn’t a confection, and the person it was intended for isn’t a councillor!

    Spill the beans (or whatever) then Jacob, who was it for and what was it all about?

  • Excrement, intended for a senior County Hall official – you could say it was a ‘double-barrelled’ attack.

  • Have your say...
