Roughly 100 guests of the Falmouth Hotel in Cornwall were woken by police and staff at 4:55 a.m. by police and evacuated after a suspicious package was found outside the hotel.

The police assessed the device found in the area and declared it ‘not viable and therefore safe’. The hotel’s residents and staff are now allowed to return to their rooms, and the 100-metre cordon previously put in the area, is being removed. 

Authorities have launched a criminal investigation, as police believe this was a hoax.

According to Sputnik, the UK Defense Ministry earlier said it will deploy several hundred military personnel, as well as several aircraft and naval vessels, to provide assistance to the UK police in ensuring security during the G7 summit in Cornwall, set for 11-13 June. G7 hotel
