Monaco: Suspect package found at Grand Prix
Bomb experts detonate suspicious package at Monaco Grand Prix
Bomb disposal experts were called to the Paddock at the Monaco Grand Prix on Thursday night after a suspicious white box was found outside the entrance of the media centre.
Authorities cordoned off the area near to La Rascasse just after 9.45pm yesterday evening. Journalists, photographers and press were evacuated from the centre, while officers carried out a controlled explosion on the box. A loud bang was heard from outside the building and authorities confirmed that the package had been successfully dealt with.
This is the second time in successive years that a bomb disposal unit has been called to the Paddock during the popular sporting event.
