2012-01-26 20:29

London - British authorities say the port of Dover has been shut down because of a "security incident" and a bomb squad has been sent to the scene.

The nature of the incident wasn't immediately clear but a spokesperson for the local Kent Police said on Thursday that military bomb disposal experts were called in. She spoke on condition of anonymity in line with force policy.

In a message posted later to the force's Twitter feed, Kent Police said that some weapons had been discovered in a car at Dover's Eastern Docks.

It wasn't clear exactly what kind of weapons were recovered and further attempts to reach the spokesperson were unsuccessful.

Dover, on England's south coast, is one of the country's busiest passenger ports and a key maritime link to France.

      The article mentions "some weapons" were discovered, not "a useless tool"...
