Police respond to suspicious packages

Two suspicious packages located in car park near Hobart Place in the City

ACT Policing responded to two suspicious packages found in a car park near Hobart Place this afternoon (Monday 20 July).

Police were alerted to the incident at around 4.30pm and a 15 metre cordon was put in place.

AFP Bomb Response Team was called in and as a precaution widened the exclusion zone to include London Circuit, Marcus Clarke Street and West Row.

The packages were later deemed safe with no suspicious circumstances.

We would like to thank the Canberra community for their patience during the incident.
