A suspicious device which led to part of Selby town centre being cordoned off this morning as bomb disposal experts were called in turned out to be an old car part. Builders excavating land for a new beer garden at the Three Swans pub at Church
Hill found the heavy cast iron device and, worried that it may be an unexploded bomb grenade, called in police. The Army bomb disposal unit was sent from Catterick Garrison while streets were sealed off and shops evacuated. When they arrived it
was quickly established that the part posed no danger and had in fact belonged to an old make of Citroen.
