Alleged Bomb Scare in Warrington Town Centre

Around 11:30am, the road behind Warrington Market, Academy Way, was blocked off due to an alleged bomb scare just outside of DW Sports Fitness Gym.
Passers by said, that a man was acting suspicious while getting out of his car, and looked as if he started praying after he mentioned he had a bomb.

At least 3 police cars turned up at the scene, where they brought along a sniffer dog where it searched the car for any suspicious devices. However, it looked as though nothing has been found.

The man in question has been detained.

The road remained closed to general traffic as a precaution while they speak to the man in question, although pedestrians have been allowed to walk through.
