Families who were evacuated in Bristol, United Kingdom have been allowed to return home. This move by the police comes two days later than that reported by the BBC.
Avon and Somerset police recently released a statement on this issue, part of which is available below:
||Most of the people evacuated from the Comb Paddock area of Bristol following an arrest under the Terrorism Act have this afternoon returned to their homes.
Only three households – those closest to the home of the 19-year-old man who was arrested – remain unable to return at this time, and those people are staying with friends and relatives.
A full forensic examination of the 19-year-old's home is continuing and this is likely to take several days to complete.
This move comes after Avon and Somerset police arrested a man in the Westbury on Trym area of the city on suspicion of terrorism.
