Voting for Luton's new Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) has resumed at the town hall after it was evacuated earlier because of a security alert.

The offices were closed and cordoned off following a phone call to the town hall at about 15:40 GMT

Ballot boxes for the PCC elections were set up in the street outside before being moved to the library.

Officers from Bedfordshire Police and sniffer dogs attended before declaring the hall safe to reopen.
