Dorset Police were called earlier this afternoon at around 3.10PM to reports that a suspicious item was discovered at the Lantern Resource Centre on Ranelagh Road in Weymouth, the Park District.

As a precaution, that building was evacuated along with nearby properties and the train station.

Officers are carrying out their investigation and a Bomb disposal team was called in.

The cordon has now been lifted and the train station re-opened.
