On the grounds of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of the British monarchs in Scotland, a group of sappers defused a suspicious device.
This is reported by the BBC.
According to police, on Tuesday at about 20: 50 they received a call to the palace, which is located in Edinburgh.
A security official said: “A 39-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident. There was no threat to the public, and the investigation into the circumstances of the case continues.”
Outside the palace on Wednesday morning, police officers with long sticks were combing the yard and grass, as well as inspecting sewers and cars. Police Scotland cars were parked at several entrances to the palace.
Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain has not been to Edinburgh for more than a year. The 94-year-old Queen and her husband Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, were isolated at Windsor, the royal country residence near London, in March last year.
They returned there again in November after coronavirus restrictions began to tighten in the country amid a worsening epidemic situation.
