Suspected bomb hoax in Daventry in the early hours of Saturday


Police are investigating suspected bomb hoax in Daventry.

They were called out shortly after midnight in the early hours of Saturday morning (August 24) to High Street to reports of a suspect package.

When they arrived officers discovered a suitcase outside Its A Gift.

Bomb experts were called in and declared the suitcase safe before it was removed for investigation.

A 19-year-old was arrested and subsequently bailed in relation to the incident.

Police are appealing for people who were out in Daventry at that time and may have seen something to get in touch via the 101 number.
