Locals in Edinburgh were evacuated after a bomb squad for a ‘device’ struck a house on Commonly Bank Street.

Edinburgh residents were evicted from their homes yesterday when a suspicious device was found in a neighbor’s property.

Neighboring houses were evacuated as a precaution and nearby roads were closed.

The bombers moved the device to a safe location so that it could detonate in a controlled manner.

Police said the incident did not pose a major threat to the wider population and residents have since been allowed to return to their homes.

However, as a precaution, officers remained at the scene for several hours after the alarm was sounded.

A Scotland Police spokesman said: “At around 2.35pm, we received a report of a possible ordinance found in a property on Camille Bank Street in Edinburgh.

“A siege was carried out by the officers and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team participated and the possible ordinance was moved to a safe place where a controlled explosion could take place.

“The siege was lifted and those evacuated from their homes returned as a precaution.”
