A road has been closed by police in Wigan.

Eyewitnesses say officers shut off Wigan Lane close to Springfield Street at around 3pm on Tuesday afternoon.

A picture taken from the cordon shows the bomb disposal unit on the road.

The same road was closed on Thursday as police searched a house following an arrest in the town.

In that incident police said they found 'potentially suspicious items'. The cordon was later lifted with no controlled explosion having taken place.
