A 33-year-old man arrested over fears a house in Wiltshire contained explosives has been released on bail.

Bomb disposal experts were sent to the property on Frome Road, Trowbridge on Friday following a tip off from a member of the public.

The man, who lives in the town, was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully possessing explosives.

"He has been released on police bail pending further inquiries," a Wiltshire Police spokesman said.

"At the address a quantity of inert substances was found and the Explosives Ordnance Department (EOD) are assisting the police in the recovery of these substances," he added.
