University of Essex evacuated amid bomb scare

The university is being evacuated after a suspicious package was found in one of the food outlets at the Colchester campus.

Essex Police just confirmed it had received a call at 11:50 about a suspicious package. The Ministry of Defence’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal team was called in and cordoned off the main section of the university.
