Princes Street Evacuated, No Threat

After the horrific scenes of this morning, Lothian Borders Police received reports of a suspect package on an LRT bus along Princes Street (opposite Zara). That was at 5.30pm and in the following hour all the shops and businesses in a 100 radius were evacuated. In the last hour a controlled explosion (and another on a bag found outside a shop) by the bomb squad has shown the bag contained no explosives at all. It's good people have their guard up though.
