Last Thursday September 9 police, fire and ambulance crews responded to reports of an explosive device at a construction site near Field Lane in Scalby.

A controlled explosion of the device was carried out at the site the following morning with the police working with experts from the Ministry of Defence.

A local man in his 40s was arrested as part of the police response to the incident but has since been released on police bail.
