https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/174801...age-found/

Daughter has just been on the phone as they are getting evacuated from her Uni office as they have found a suspicious package in the mail room. Bomb squad have just arrived.

On the news just now.

Although why terrorists would go to the trouble of making and distributing explosive devices when a few drone operators near a major airport would cause far more disruption is beyond me.

It could be linked to the fire bombs in London, nobody really knows anything Confused Just spoke to her and she is still in her office as they can't evacuate their building for some reason so they are being kept inside by the police.

Bomb hoaxes are relatively easy and definitely low cost compared to using a drone at an airport. Send something that looks "wrong" and watch chaos ensue for a few hours. Easy.

Why do they do it? No doubt they think they have a good reason. Bit like the idiots who set fire to straw bale stacks so they can watch the fire brigade playing with their hoses, I guess.

Package found in the mail room. Perhaps it could be relocated to a less vulnerable place? Academics are not known for being sensible.

Bomb threats in Glasgow!!! I wonder who’s going to get a kick in the balls today🤣

Before anyone gets touchy my daughter is down in that area too at Uni.

Come to think of it if she misses track training tonight then someone will get a hoof in the nads 🤣
 Its not the height of the fall but the sudden stop at the bottom that hurts!!

Today's are being linked to those yesterday in London ...obviously an idiot has scraped the match heads off a few boxes of matches and mixed it with iron filings ...as although they are 'viable' ...it seems the ignition is about as powerful as a bonfire night sprinkler.
