G7 bomb hoax

World | REUTERS 11 Jun 2021

Police have arrested a man for a bomb hoax near the media center set up to cover the G7 summit in England, after officers had evacuated a hotel in response to reports of a suspicious package.

Officers were called out to the hotel in Falmouth at about 3.15am after the package was found.

A Royal Navy bomb disposal unit was called in and declared it unviable, but only after about 100 people from a hotel and surrounding properties were evacuated.

A 20-year-old man from Falmouth had been arrested, police said.
