Police called to three more suspicious packages in Lincoln

Third incident reported in 24 hours

Lincolnshire Police removed a third suspicious package that was reported to them within 24 hours from the false alarm at the Lincoln bus station yesterday.

City centre community beat manager Christopher Forsdyke attended a report of a suspicious bag left in the pedestrian underpass on Lincoln High Street at around lunch time on Wednesday, October 10.

He checked the suitcase and said it was not suspicious. He believes it belongs to a homeless person in the city.

He said the case will be taken to the British Heart Foundation shop nearby in case anybody will claim it.

PC Forsdyke told The Lincolnite reporter Joseph Verney: “We had three calls about further suspicious packages after yesterday’s events as people’s fears are raised.

“They were all checked and there was no danger.

“We want to reassure people there is no immediate danger and to report any concerns to us.”
