We have a brief update to the police investigation which has closed the A5 and A43, near Towcester.
Shortly after 2pm today (Monday, October 4), the EOD were called after the discovery of a suspicious item. This has now been safely removed and taken away for further examination.
Road closures, which were put in place to ensure public safety, have now been lifted. We would like to thank both members of the public and motorists for their patience, whilst we dealt with this incident.
