FAMILIES living in West Kilbride were evacuated from their homes yesterday after potentially explosive materials were discovered in a house following reports of a loud bang.
Around a dozen people were moved to safety as bomb disposal experts worked at the scene.
A 21-year-old man has been arrested and is being detained in police custody in connection with the incident.
Police were called to the scene at 6.30pm on Tuesday after a loud bang was heard coming from the garden of the house.
“Following a search under warrant of the house, a quantity of potentially explosive materials were recovered,” said a police spokesman.
West Kilbride resident Alan Dapré was evacuated from his house.
He said: “I heard a low boom around 6pm on Tuesday – it sounded like a big firework or a bird scarer. It was a hell of a noise. The police were there within half an hour and were still there in the morning.
“They blocked off the road and then we were evacuated around 4pm although they told us it was nothing to worry about.”
