Trowbridge shopping centre shuts as suspect package found

First published in News

The Shires shopping centre car park in Trowbridge was closed for just over an hour at lunchtime today after a suspect package was discovered.

Police were called and the car park was cordoned off until the package - a suitcase - was removed after the officer in charge declared there was no risk and no threat.

Neither the shopping centre or ASDA supermarket were closed but no-one was allowed to enter the car park until the all clear was given.

I can understand the contents being "suspect", but what could the suitcase itself have been suspected of being??!!

A so called suspect package does not become suspect until after its discovery. unless an already suspect package is subsequently lost then found.
