Suspicious Package Found by MP Jeremy Quin’s Office

A police-led incident is unfolding in Horsham by the office of MP Jeremy Quin. Bomb disposal units and the West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service (WSFRS) are currently on the scene.

A Sussex Police spokesperson provided the following statement: “We are currently responding to a report of a suspicious package at a premises in Madeira Avenue, Horsham, received at about 2.40 pm this afternoon. Police and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team are currently at the scene. If anyone in the area has concerns, they can speak to an officer at the scene or call 101. Further updates will be provided in due course.”

Jeremy Quin made statement “After the receipt of a suspicious parcel at my Horsham office earlier today the Police decided that the incident should be escalated and specialists from

the Explosive Ordinance Disposal team were called in.

It is still under investigation but there is no cause for alarm and the incident is being thoroughly and professionally addressed.

It’s a huge privilege to engage in public service but sadly in the world in which we live incidents of this nature always have to be taken seriously. I am very grateful to the emergency services for their prompt actions and continuing work to ensure public safety.”
