Officers closed Nottingham Road at the Larklands petrol station this afternoon (Sunday October 6) after a ‘suspicious incident’.
It is thought a suspicious package was found at or near the petrol station.
Pc Andy Kendall-Edwards said on Twitter: “There was a suspicious incident. Not an armed robbery nor an attempt. Road was closed as a precaution.”
Some twitter users reported seeing bomb disposal vehicles on the road at about 2pm.
The road was closed in both directions and traffic was diverted via The Triangle.
