So I got a little curious when on my way home from taking the kids to Happy Mount Park with Kathy & Katie I saw half of Skerton cordoned off with tons of police milling about. I thought maybe someone had tried to kill themselves, or fallen into the river or something (I am a shameless rubber necker). Then when I was sat at traffic lights round Kingsway a police van shot past followed by a van reading "Bomb Disposal Unit" ... Here. In Lancaster. Where it's quiet and nice!
SO as soon as I got home (well, ok, after I'd fed and changed Tom and asked Mark to fix some lunch for Jack) I jumped on the t'interweb and tried to find out what had happened. Only the local press was slow off the mark and I could only find some vague news on the local radio stations web site. A suspicious package seen on the back seat of a car. I'd guessed that much!
Now that I'm having a look though, it seems my nice little mini-city home isn't as safe as I thought!
This is the second bomb scare in less than a week, police called in the squad after raiding a home on Lune Road at 9am on Wednesday (September 22). WMGStories are different everywhere I look. But I'm hooked now:

I think I need to work "checking on the local news" into my daily routine!
