ASOS evacuated after hoax bomb threat

Monday September 18 2017




POLICE have confirmed they were called to ASOS on Saturday following a bomb scare.

Police were called just after 6.55pm to the warehouse in Park Spring Road after they received information about an alleged bomb threat.

A police spokeswoman said: "The building was immediately evacuated as a precautionary measure while it was searched.

"There was no device found and officers would like to reassure the community that there is no evidence to suggest that this was a credible threat. Enquiries are now ongoing to identify the caller.

"Hoax calls are malicious and irresponsible, particularly in the current climate, and anyone found to have made a hoax call will be identified, arrested and could face a prison sentence."
