The Met Police are aware of reports of a suspicious package being discovered today, 22 March, at a postal depot in Limerick, Republic of Ireland. We are in liaison with our counterparts in the Republic of Ireland as to whether this may have any connection to our ongoing investigation into devices received in London on 5 March and the device received in Glasgow on 6 March.

Our investigation into the three devices found in London continues alongside the Police Scotland investigation into the device found in Glasgow. No arrests have been made at this stage and enquiries continue.

Following the discovery of the devices on 5 March in London, extensive advice was issued to relevant businesses and sectors across the UK to be vigilant for and report suspicious packages to police.

This advice remains and we continue to urge the public to be vigilant and report anything suspicious to police.
