Lisburn: Pond Park Primary School bomb alert over after five hour operation

The BBC is reporting that `round 600 children were moved out of a Lisburn primary school after a bomb warning call yesterday morning…

Pond Park Primary School got a call just after 09:00 BST saying a device had been left there.

Police initially asked for the children to be kept in the school while they carried out a search of the grounds.

They then evacuated the school and have began to search inside the building.

The alert is now over…

Alica Sangan, whose children are pupils at the school, said she “was shook up” when she received a text message telling her about the alert…

Another parent, Rachel Jamison, said it was an “absolute disgrace that children have to experience this”…

 

What a big and clever thing to do.
