The Halifax on Princes Street has been evacuated after ‘suspicious package’ found
Trams have been stopped and parts of the road closed
At 12:30 today the Halifax on Princes Street was evacuated after reports came in of a suspicious package.
Bomb disposal officers were subsequently sent into the bank branch, and the surrounding shops evacuated. Traffic was stopped, and for half an hour, and all trams between the West End and York Place were suspended.
This comes a day after Glasgow University was evacuated because of a suspicious package found in the mail room.
We received a report of a suspicious package having been received at a business premises on Princes Street at around 12.30pm today.
The building has been evacuated as a precaution & officers are in attendance to progress inquiries.
We will provide further updates in due course
