A suspicious package and a "number of weapons" have been found at a house in Bridlington.

Police sealed off the property on West Street at about 15:30 GMT after being called by contractors who were working on the empty building.

Some surrounding houses were evacuated while an Army bomb squad attended the scene.

Humberside Police said the unit "dealt with the suspicious object", though a cordon remains around the house.
