Bomb disposal units respond to call at Manchester college - police


Bomb disposal units were responding to a call at a college in Manchester on Thursday, said police investigating the terror attack in the city which killed 22 people.

"EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) have now arrived on site," police said without giving further details.

Police earlier said the call was at a college in Trafford, a suburb of Manchester, but then said it was in Hulme, an area just south of the city centre.


"The army attended Linby Street in Hulme and not a college in Trafford," the police said on Twitter.


It said several roads in the area were closed, but the situation has now been deemed safe and the cordon removed.
