The police have evacuated three homes in the village of Hoogkarspel in North Holland because of a possible explosive at a scooter. The area around the scooter has been deposited.
The emergency services have sounded the alarm. According to a reporter from NH Nieuws , many aid workers are now on site.
People who live near the Nieuweweg are advised to stay indoors. The evacuated residents were taken care of elsewhere.
The police and the Explosives Clearance Service Defense (EOD) conduct investigations on the spot. It is not clear what kind of suspicious object was found and why the police raised the alarm after the find.
According to NH News , the investigation of the object at the scooter could be related to an attempt at a thud that took place in the night of Monday to Tuesday in Hoogkarspel. A number of men behaved suspiciously at an ATM on Raadhuisplein.
At present, three houses have been evacuated, residents have been taken in. Environment (+/- 100 meters) is deposited by the police. Residents of the area within the enclosure are requested to stay inside. Updates follow through this channel. More information later. #Hoogkarspel #NieuwewegAvatar
