At 8:30am Kent Police received a ‘tip off’ that a bomb had been put in the precinct of Canterbury Cathedral. The Cathedral has now be cordoned off and evacuated along with the King’s school.  

The bomb disposal squad arrived at 9:20am. 

Along Palace Street a wooden gate has been battered down, on the other side of the gate armed police guard the Cathedral. I was able to speak to an officer he told me that their main focus is “on finding out if this is a hoax or genuine threat”, also told me that their main priority at the moment is “keeping the public safe”.  

I was also able to speak to a witness: “I can’t believe it. I’m in a bit of a panic. Nothing like this ever happens in Canterbury.” She continued by saying “If it weren’t for the Police being tipped off I’d have just gone in without knowing” Anne Cooper, 24 from Whistable.
