A suspicious package that led to a bomb squad being called and a stretch of the M8 to be closed was not a viable device, police have said.
Emergency services were alerted to the incident within a business premises in Glasgow’s Milnbank Street at around 3.30pm on Thursday.
Nearby residents were evacuated and the street was locked down as officers awaited the EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) team.
A section of the nearby M8 was also closed for a number of hours, causing traffic tailbacks.
On Friday morning, the force stated: “Officers from EOD attended and examined the item, who confirmed it was not a viable device. Police enquiries continue.
“The cordon was later removed and residents returned to their homes.
“We thank the public for their cooperation and patience during this incident.”
