Big drama here as a nearby house was raided and a man arrested under the Explosives Act. People living within 100 metres were evacuated and the Community Centre was opened up as a refuge for them. I went down to see if they needed extras spaces for people as it was looking like an overnighter and the church building would have been ideal for them. In the end it wasn't needed, there was a controlled explosion and people were allowed back into their houses at around 10pm, after about 14 hours of the arrest. All happens here!
