Building Evacuated After Suspicious Bag Found

Wednesday October 19 2011

THE CIVIC building on Eldon Street was evacuated Wednesday afternoon after a suspicious bag was found inside.

Staff called police at 15.47pm after a rucksack was found abandoned in a room. The building - home to many front-line council services - was evacuated as a precaution and a dog handler was sent in.

The sniffer dog did not detect any traces of anything suspicious on the bag - and a police spokesman says when it was opened, nothing was found inside either.

The incident has now been cleared and staff are back in the building.
