Police have closed off Cabourne Avenue and a section of Nettleham Road in Lincoln after a suspicious package was found under a car.
Officers received a call at 1.30pm on Thursday to say a suspicious package had been put under a car on Cabourne Avenue in Lincoln.
As a precautionary measure, police have closed off Cabourne Avenue and a section of Nettleham Road between the Browning Drive and Outer Circle junctions.
It is understood that a GP surgery on the road has been evacuated as a result of the incident, after an eyewitness told The Lincolnite all health care workers and other staff had been asked to leave the premises.
Police have said that due to the severity of the allegation, the incident has been treated very seriously while investigations are underway to ‘establish the facts’.
A bomb disposal vehicle and the East Midlands Ambulance Service incident response unit arrived at the scene shortly after 3pm as part of the investigations.
Officers are currently engaging with local residents affected by the closures, and will update people shortly.
