A man who works in the area said: "It's really shocking, there's a lot of people who work in the area who have been scared.

"Police have been here before in regards to other things but when they were here for a couple of days and what we've now heard it's really shocking and upsetting."

One person who works close to the scene said that there has been a police presence for three days.

People have not been able to access the car park.
