A 20 year old man has been arrested following a bomb threat in Falmouth this morning.

Police were called out at 3:15am on Thursday morning to Falmouth Hotel following reports of a suspicious package on hotel grounds.

Following assessment from the Royal Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), the device was declared not viable and therefore safe.

In order to maintain public safety, the area was evacuated as a precautionary measure and a 100-meter cordon was put in place.

In total around 100 people were displaced, all of whom have since been allowed back and the 100-meter cordon has been removed.

Police launched an investigation shortly after and the 20 year old man has been placed into custody.
