POLICE are investigating after an explosive device was delivered to a house in an incident they are treating as an anti-semitic hate crime.

A stretch of Clayhall Avenue in Clayhall was closed at around 3pm yesterday (November 12) after police received reports that a suspicious package had been delivered to the house.

The package was examined and made safe by explosives experts.

The road was reopened at 4.35pm, but the house remained cordoned off while police conducted their investigation.

Nobody was injured during the incident and police say the package posed no danger to the public.

They are not treating the incident as terrorist related.
