Suspect bailed

A 20-year-old man from Falmouth who was arrested on suspicion of a bomb hoax at the Falmouth Hotel yesterday, has been release on bail.

Police were called at around 3.15am on Thursday 10 June following reports of a suspicious package on the grounds outside of the hotel on Cliff Road in Falmouth.

Following assessment by the Royal Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), the device was declared not viable and therefore safe.

In order to maintain public safety, the area was evacuated as a precautionary measure and a 100-meter cordon was put in place and around 100 people were evacuated.

A 20-year-old man from Falmouth, who was arrested on suspicion of a bomb hoax, placing an article with intent, has been released on police bail until 7 July while police carry out further enquiries.
