Bomb scare in Civic yesterday afternoon

Canfan 22 July 2015


ACT Policing responded to two suspicious packages found in a car park near Hobart Place yesterday afternoon (Monday 20 July).

Police were alerted to the incident at around 4.30pm and a 15 metre cordon was put in place.

AFP Bomb Response Team was called in and as a precaution widened the exclusion zone to include London Circuit, Marcus Clarke Street and West Row.

The packages were later deemed safe with no suspicious circumstances.

We would like to thank the Canberra community for their patience during the incident.
