High Road in Beeston, Nottinghamshire, was closed on Friday while officers carried out an investigation into a suspect package.

Police now want to thank residents and businesses for their support while they cordoned off part of the road.

Controlled explosions were carried out as a precaution before the street reopened at around 5.30pm.

We would like to reassure the people of Nottinghamshire that we do not believe the package posed any threat to the general public and officers do not believe that the incident was linked to terror activity.

However, we would like to thank everyone for remaining vigilant and would continue to encourage anyone who does have concerns about suspicious items to report them.

– Chief Inspector Mark Stanley

Dr Kinston's GP has told the court she diagnosed her as having post-natal depression.The 37-year-old gave birth to her second child in January 2013.

Dr Elizabeth Woodroffe saw her on several occasions in the months leading up to her death, including on the morning she disappeared.

Dr Woodroffe said Dr Kinston came to her with anxieties about her house and work. At times, she also had suicidal thoughts but denied having specific plans to carry them out.

But the GP from Manor Surgery in Beeston said Dr Kinston never told her about any irrational anxieties such as worries about being spied on or being followed.

The court heard they talked over counselling options and Dr Kinston chose Cognitive Behavioural Therapy rather than being referred to a psychiatrist.
