    Newcastle/Sunderland/Gateshead, bomb disposal squad???

    Was driving home from work southboud on the A1 just before the metro centre and heard a siren and saw some flashing lights behind me.

    I waited, and looked and it wasn't a police car.

    Wasn't an ambulance, nor a fire engine.

    It was something i had never seen before.

    A bomb disposal unit!

    Anyone know iof there is any news? Why would they be flying down the a1?

    Anyway justinterested in case anyone was in the know

    If its not on the news then it could have been a training exercise / alert or maybe someone found some old WWII bomb / grenade.

    If it was around lunchtime then they were probably doing the Mcdonalds run.

    Ufo ?

    Surely if they're in the know, they already know.

    And it sounds like you know too much.

    southbound on the A1 past the metro centre? Thats heading towards my house! I hope my home-brew cider hasn't exploded everywhere again....

    True, I seem to be there every time as well! Hearing sirens wail and seeing every security guard in the place running hell for leather in the same direction (I assume AWAY from the bomb :-D) is quite scary

    Did it look like this
