A police emergency shut down part of the inner city at peak hour this morning.
The bomb squad was called in, but a suspicious package was later pronounced harmless.
James Bullock reports.
The owner of this BMW alerted police to the package underneath his vehicle just after 7:30.
A bomb disposal robot was brought in to remove the package.
Vox 1: “When they started closing the street off we started to wonder ‘should we be here'”
The object was later found to be a GPS device.
Police are now investigating how it got there, and why.
In Melbourne, a teacher was stabbed as she arrived at her school this morning.
A man armed with a knife demanded she hand over her laptop.
When she refused, he stabbed her then ran off empty-handed.
Vox 1: “You go to work in the morning and you think ‘am I going to come home or not,’ so it’s shocking.”
Vox 2: “I’ve never seen anything like this before, so I wouldn’t expect it at all.”
The teacher was taken to hopsital with knife wounds in her leg.
And a heavy machinery worker has died on a Sydney construction site.
The man had left his vehicle to talk to another driver when the truck suddenly rolled forward, crushing him.
