Traffic on the Kingsway has ground to a halt after the Dryburgh Industrial Estate was blocked off to vehicles as the bomb squad investigates a “suspicious package”.
Police said this morning the Tesco call centre building had been evacuated whilst the road in and around the centre remains closed – leading to a build-up of traffic.
On Twitter, one woman shared pictures of the gridlock, however, she mistakenly reported that it was due to an accident.
