God, it's cold out there - let's all huddle in this doorway.

This was the scene outside JJB Sports on Royal Avenue about 5.20 this evening. With the S.W.A.T. team gathered in the doorway of the Benefit Shop next to JJB Sports I thought they were preparing for a seige or an armed stand-off but apparently what happened was that an explosive device partially exploded in the shop during the night and the bomb squad were called in about 9 o'clock this morning. So!, why such a big security presence tonight? Perhaps they were just collecting their dole money (c: or maybe they were all having a laugh at such an ineffectual device.
