Bomb disposal team at County Hall after a suspect package was discovered.

Parts of County Hall have been evacuated after a suspect package was discovered.

First published in News

A bomb disposal team from the Royal Logistics Corps is currently at County Hall in Haverfordwest following reports of a 'suspect package'.

 

A county council spokesman told the Western Telegraph that a partial evacuation had taken place as a result of the alert.

 

Several police officers and vehicles are parked at County Hall and people are being stopped from entering the premises, including the car park.

 

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman said it was responding to a report of a suspect package in County Hall.

 

"A partial evacuation has been implemented and officers are preventing any further access to the building as a precaution until Explosives Ordnance Disposal arrive at scene and deal with the package," the spokesman added.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a large wad of used notes in a brown envelope left after a planning committee meeting.

I am shocked that my fellow Pembrokeshire citizens hold their councillors in such low esteem. These people give up their valuable time without hope of personal gain, nest-feathering or pork-barreling. For shame!

It's only fair exchange as the Council (thanks to the un-named "spokesman" / press officer/professional liar/spin doctor ) has been doling out piles of bovine effluent to the voters and tax payers of Pembrokeshire for years
