UK police keeping 'open mind' in letter bombs inquiry

Another package sparked an evacuation Wednesday at the Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters in Edinburgh.

The three London devices, sent in A4-sized white postal bags to buildings at or near Heathrow Airport, London City Airport and Waterloo train station on Tuesday, are being treated by Britain's counterterrorism police as a "linked series".

The package is believed to have been discovered at the "Crichton" campus, which serves as a Borders base for the University of Glasgow as well as the University of the West of Scotland.

He said bomb-disposal experts later performed a controlled explosion on the item.

"There are similarities in the package, its markings and the type of device that was recovered in Glasgow to those in London".

"We are working very closely with our colleagues from Police Scotland and both investigations are being run in tandem".

They later said the package posed no risk.

We have received a call today about a suspicious package at University of Essex.

"The same advice has already been sent to a range of businesses, including transport hubs and mail sorting companies, and will now also be sent to those in the education sector. As always we encourage anyone who sees something suspicious to report it to police immediately".

"As a precaution we have put a 100m cordon in place and we have evacuated a section of the university and nearby buildings". A Ministry of Defences team was called to the area.

The senders' addresses were given as Dublin for the two airport packages, with the one addressed to Waterloo appearing to add Bus Éireann.

The Metropolitan Police are treating the incidents as a linked series and are being assisted by the Garda Security and Intelligence Unit in the investigation.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon, the senior national co-ordinator for counter-terrorism policing, said on Wednesday that no link had been made with Irish dissidents at this stage.

Irish police later said they were "assisting the Metropolitan police with their enquiries", as the packages were reported to have Irish stamps on them. One such line is the possibility that the packages have come from Ireland.
