Man arrested in Watford after bomb squad destroys suspicious package
A man in a niqab has been arrested after army bomb-disposal experts made a controlled explosion of a suspicious package in Watford.
Cars and buses were left abandoned as police forced civilians to clear the town centre on Thursday while the bomb squad deployed a robot to detonate a suspicious package outside a Travelodge.
Pictures on Twitter showed officers earlier confronting a figure in Islamic robes and a veil near a bag on the ground. It is not clear if this was the same object destroyed by the bomb squad.
