A large area was cordoned off in the Sollentuna suburb north of Stockholm on Wednesday as police warned a suspicious object had been found.

The national bomb squad was called out to investigate the object, which turned out to be a hand grenade.

The first report of the object was made around 10.30am.

“It was a teacher at the school who raised the alarm. The employee then showed [us] where the object was and we cordoned off a large area,” said police press spokesperson Per Fahlström.

The police cordons were lifted again during the afternoon.
