VIC Bomb Squad On Scene Near Doncaster Shopping Centre For “Safety Check”

The Victorian Police bomb squad conducted a “safety check” on a public bus adjacent to Westfield Doncaster in Melbourne’s east this afternoon, but the ‘suspicious package’ was revealed to be an unattended backpack.

Police received a call earlier this afternoon regarding the Route 902 bus, and cordoned off a stretch of Williamsons Road in the immediate vicinity. 

The road has since been re-opened. 

Currently, the shopping centre’s cinema, restaurants and supermarkets are operating as usual.
