I am hearing reports from my UKC friends about a device has been found at University of Kent. About 15 minutes from my house.

My university in Greenwich has links to UKC, I am position on the Canterbury campus. Police will not confirmed what happened, but apparently it was not hoax.

This is the article I've found online, I shall do a phone around and get on to the campus. As a Greenwich, I have a pass to all universities in the UK

Currently, the university is on lockdown and the security is being increased. Exams have restarted.

I shall keep ATS updated

A controlled explosion was carried out

The Kent University campus is open again after the library was evacuated when a suspicious package was found.

Bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion at the Canterbury campus on Tuesday afternoon.

Students and staff were forced to leave the Templeman Library after police received a call from staff at 2.30pm.

It could be an idiot, animal rights (not the first time) or other individuals. But majority of the things I am hearing are unconfirmed rumours. Security has been increased.

Other educational facilities, including my own, have increased security and other targets as well in Canterbury.

ANOTHER device was found today, in a part of Canterbury called Wincheap.

The discovery of a suspicious package caused huge traffic problems as part of a Kent city was closed off on Thursday afternoon.

The suspect item was spotted at the Esso petrol station in Wincheap, Canterbury by a local roofer at around 3.15pm. A 100m cordon was set up around the garage, causing chaos on the surrounding roads.

An army bomb disposal team was called and declared the package safe. Roads were reopened but motorists were still urged to avoid the area as the traffic cleared.

Police are not linking the events, but the city is feel nervous.

Sometimes these things are chasing at shadows.

Someone finds something they believe to be suspicious, they report it, the news gets out, people get paranoid... and start seeing suspicious activities all over the place. That's one possible explanation.

It's hard to be sure until the police reveal more details, though. Best to be safe than sorry in cases like this.

The one at the University was rumoured to be nothing, but police are keeping quite about it. However, the petrol station at Wincheap required the Army to come out and near by houses (including my friend) were evacuated.

It is very odd for Canterbury. We've had two bomb scares in my life time. Both were pranks to McDonald's and to my old college.

I believe Deal is the only place in Kent to face a terrorist attack, which was the IRA in 1992 (check date, not sure). But still, it is friggin' weird for Canterbury.

This place is conservative heartland and home to Canterbury Cathedral (mother church of the Church of England and the world wide Anglican community)

Kevin French, who spotted the package and alerted garage staff, said: "It was about the size of a mobile phone but wrapped in brown parcel tape and had wires sticking out of it and a little red flashing light.

What is weird is Wincheap is the poor end of Canterbury. Nothing is there. A 10 minute walk and you are in the City centre, with the largest tourists in Kent and the a million pound shopping centre.
