UK vaccine site evacuated over suspect package

British police said yesterday they were called to an industrial estate, after a pharmaceutical company involved in coronavirus vaccine manufacturing received a suspicious package. "We are currently dealing with an ongoing incident on the Wrexham Industrial Estate," North Wales Police said in a statement. "The roads are currently closed and we would ask the public to avoid the area until further notice." Local media reported a bomb disposal unit had been sent to the scene, with images showing a robotic device being deployed by emergency responders. Global pharmaceutical and biotechnology company Wockhardt, which plays a role in Covid-19 vaccines production, said its site there had been "partially" evacuated following the discovery of a suspicious package.

"Wockhardt UK in Wrexham this morning received a suspicious package," the company said in a statement, adding "all relevant authorities were immediately notified and engaged".
