B455 closed due to left luggage

The end of the B455 at the junction with the A661 was closed on Monday, 23rd September, 2013, when a suitcase and an 11kg gas cylinder were found on the side of the road.

Police closed off the area, the Red Cross were put on standby and the residents living close by were informed.

An inspection of the items found them not to be dangerours and detectives took the decision to re-open the road around three hours later.

It is believed that the items had been left by a white transporter with a Polish number plate around 10am that had stopped to deal with a tyre problem.  Police believe that they may have been left behind by mistake.  Witnesses are asked to call Bad Homburg police station on 06172 1200.
