A university library had to be evacuated and bomb disposal experts called after a suspect bag was found this afternoon.

Police cordoned off a 400-metre radius around the library at the University of Kent in Canterbury after the call from staff at about 2.30pm.

The disruption came at the height of exam time with many students still on campus.

Bomb disposal officers arrived on the scene shortly after 4pm.

Police spokesman Jane Walker said a number of officers were on the scene but could not confirm what the package was.

Investigations are underway.
