Explosion in Ljungsbro in Linköping

Around eight thirty in the morning, the police were called to Härnegatan in Ljungsbro due to a loud bang. An object had exploded on Härnegatan by the canal. A larger area is now cordoned off.

– We are in the process of sorting it out. The important thing is that no one has been injured. I don’t think any buildings are damaged. It’s an object by the canal that has exploded in some way, says Johnny Gustafsson, spokesperson for the Police Region East.

What can you say about the item?

– It is an object that was not placed on a building. I’m not going to comment on what kind of item it is, but it’s not some strange item, but right now we want to keep it to our knowledge.
