An estate in Dundee is on lockdown and the bomb squad has been called after a device was discovered in a search.
Cops discovered the device in Carlochie Place in Craigie.
A police statement said: “The EOD have been informed and are enroute.
“A 100m cordon is in place and residents are in the process of being evacuated as a precaution. There is no wider threat to the public.
“A man has been arrested and enquiries are continuing.
“There are road closures in place at Greendykes, Craigie Avenue and Carlochie Place and motorists are asked to avoid the area if possible for time being.”
