Very weird, if the "bomb" was handed into the police station, why are the bomb disposal team & robot pictured at the very top of station road right next to residential property?

Have to agree with you loose-cannon. Also an awful lot of contradicting information being reported from Gwent Police on here look at 1135 it states it was reported this morning yet at 3.28 Gwent police confirm related to yesterday afternoon where they assessed the situation and left it until today in daylight hours to detonate the item so surely at 1135 this morning they knew it was reported yesterday...about time the truth was told of what is or has been going on.

Presumably these photos are after the controlled explosion as the police and even the bomb disposal squad would not all be standing close to it

Maybe the photos were, but with the town centre closed off they conduct all activity in a small side street, what's wrong with the high street ?

If the police knew that the bomb squad was going to detonate the the device today, why didn't they inform the bus companies and the public earlier, so other travel routes could be used, instead of utter confusion.

True John. Why not tell local residents that this would take place the next morning. I don't believe the story that the police are telling the media. This all taking place so close to the parades on Saturday.... I'm guessing the police may have missed something then and are no trying to cover things up... as they are renowned for

All i've seen on here is aftermath of the incident and a small amount of what happened. Why is nobody asking why there was a bomb handed in? Who handed it in? Why did they have a bomb? Where was it from? When was it meant to go off? Why aren't we being told this? Surely it is more important, long term...?
