Victoria’s parliament locked down after bomb threat

Victoria’s parliament was placed into lockdown on Thursday morning after a reported bomb threat.

Police confirmed they had been called to a Spring St building in Melbourne to complete a “safety check” around 10.45am.

However, the site was later deemed safe after all entrances were blocked by security.

State MPs were earlier notified of the incident in an email on Thursday morning.

“At this stage the building is in lockdown, so no one can enter or exit the building,” the email read.
“The police are investigating, and we will send an email update as soon as we have more information.”

The opposition cancelled a press conference that was slated to be held at the site shortly after noon.
