Bomb disposal team called over Newbury Racecourse fire extinguisher
A bomb disposal team was called to Newbury Racecourse after builders identified a fire extinguisher as a "suspicious package".
Specialists from the army attended the scene shortly after police were called at 10:50 GMT.
Onlooker Craig Leech said he saw the military unit place an object in the back of their van and drive away.
A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: "The item was examined and was revealed to be an old fire extinguisher."
