A shopping centre in Worcestershire has been evacuated after a bomb threat was made towards a store.

The centre was evacuated as officers carried out a “full search” of the area. Nothing suspicious was found.

Officers say their enquiries to trace the person who made the threats are continuing and that “there is not believed to be any cause for concern to the wider public.”

Police officers and the fire service are still in attendance at the shopping centre, which remains closed.
