POLICE HAVE confirmed that an "unexplained device" - recovered on Monday 18 February from a garden in Torquay - is not explosive. A woman and two men - who were being interviewed by the police in connection with the incident - have now been released on police bail....

The incident began on Monday 18 February following concerns from officers who attended an address in Falloway Close, Torquay.

Police then set up a 100-metre cordon in the area of Falloway Close as a precaution following the discovery of an "unexplained device" in the garden of a property.

Following a search of a house in Falloway Close, officers recovered two items that were believed to be explosive. Initial examinations of these items showed that this was not the case and could not have caused any harm.

Police interviewed a woman and two men in connection with the incident. The three people have now been released on police bail, to return to Torquay Police Station later this year.

The police say they would like to thank the local community for their support during this investigation and for being patient while they investigated the risk to the public.
