Bishop Grosseteste University can confirm that Lincolnshire Police were called to our Lincolnshire Open Research and Innovation Centre (LORIC) this morning following the discovery of a suspicious item at an archaeological dig on site. On police advice and in line with our health and safety procedures for such an event the LORIC building was evacuated as a precautionary measure. The rest of campus was unaffected. The LORIC site is now open. The Police have confirmed that the item discovered poses no risk to the public and were happy that the University had called them in. Thank you to all our students and staff for being vigilant and reacting swiftly to this incident. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Lincolnshire Emergency Services and the Bomb Disposal Squad for their calm and professional support, as well as our staff, students and partnership organisations for their patience and understanding.
