Boy held as 'substances' probe forces evacuation in Hull

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after suspected explosive substances were found at a house in Hull, forcing neighbours to be evacuated and army bomb disposal experts called in.

A handful of homes along terraced Kilnsea Grove remain cordoned off tonight with police and fire service officials still in place, though many residents have been allowed to return to their properties.

The teenager was arrested by Humberside Police in the early hours of this morning along with a 49-year-old woman and a 56-year-old man.
