    Update: Police have now scaled back the operation and have lifted the cordon after the items have been deemed to be safe.

    Police are saying that there is no evidence of any explosive material and that the devices were part of what is thought to be a firework.

    The arrest is unrelated to the incident.

    An army bomb disposal team is currently attending an ongoing incident focused upon a grey coloured SEAT Leon vehicle which was stopped by police on Park Place in Salford this evening (28th Feb).

    An area has been cordoned off and there is reportedly a large police presence on the residential street close to Salford Royal Hospital.

    Officers say that they stopped a vehicle just before 3.40pm in Park Place in Salford and arrested a man.

    Following a search of the vehicle, two suspicious items were found and a cordon has been put in place as a precaution.

    A bomb disposal unit is attending the scene to determine of the devices are viable using a remotely controlled robot for safety. An ambulance from NWAS is on standby at the scene should it be needed.

    Nearby residents in the surrounding homes have been evacuated as a precaution and officers remain at the scene.

    An 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault.

    He remains in custody at this time.
