Bomb squad and large police presence in Pitstone

Published by the Mix96 News Team at 4:17pm 13th November 2019. (Updated at 3:06pm 14th November 2019)

A large police presence and the bomb squad has been seen in Pitstone today (13th Nov).

Officers executed a search warrant at an address on Morton Close at around 8am.

The pre-planned warrant is part of an operation to establish whether any criminal offences are being undertaken within the property and officers remain at the address while conducting their enquiries.

As part of the search, officers are being supported by specialist resources, including EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) as a precautionary measure to maintain public and officer safety.

We've had reports people were asked to stay in their homes nearby.

But, there is no immediate cause for the public to be concerned and the local community are thanked for their support and understanding.

No one has been arrested and enquiries continue.

UPDATE:

As of 3pm on Thursday (14th Nov) officers have concluded their enquiries and left the address.

Police would like to thank everyone in the area for their support and understanding.
