A man arrested in Somerset after the discovery of a suspected explosive device in Warmley in South Gloucestershire has been released on bail.
Police were called to Kenmoor Close on Saturday after suspicious items were found in a shed. 80 homes were evacuated for five hours.
The army detonated one device safely nearby while other items were taken for examination.
I would like to stress that we are not treating this as terrorism. At this stage we do not believe the objects were made with the deliberate intention of causing harm to anyone or anything. However, these objects could have a posed a danger to the local community and I am pleased they have been found and made safe.
Over the past 24 hours we have had good support from the local community and I would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding when they were evacuated for several hours. These decisions are never taken lightly but are necessary to make sure people are safe.
