Suspicious package in Manchester ‘deemed safe’ (Update)

A reported suspicious package in Manchester which British army bomb disposal experts investigated has been deemed safe, police said Thursday, adding that a cordon had been removed.

“There was a cordon in Hulme, not Trafford as previously suggested, relating to a possible suspicious package,” the Greater Manchester Police said in a statement.

“This has now been deemed safe and the cordon has been removed.”

British army bomb disposal experts and police arrived at a college in Manchester, police had previously said.
