Police intercept fifth suspect parcel


Another suspect package has been intercepted by police in Northern Ireland investigating parcel bombs sent to Celtic manager Neil Lennon and two high-profile club supporters.

The latest and fifth suspect parcel bomb was found at the National Return Letter Centre in Belfast which retains undelivered mail due to no return to sender address.

Army bomb experts confirmed it was “similar in nature” to the other devices under investigation.

The latest package was not addressed to anyone and was returned undelivered from an address in Scotland.

A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Police said the Scottish police forces have been alerted and will continue further investigations.

First Minister Alex Salmond said: “Everyone should remain calm in light of this new discovery and continue to give Strathclyde Police our full support in their investigation. Let’s be quite clear – the individual or individuals responsible for these disgraceful actions will be apprehended and dealt with with the full force of the law.”
