Package at university's Dumfries campus 'posed no risk'
Emergency services were called to Glasgow University's campus at 12.30pm on Thursday.
A suspicious package discovered at Glasgow University's Dumfries campus was found to contain material that posed no risk to the public.
Staff and students were evacuated from the Rutherford/McCowan building as a precautionary measure following the alert at 12.30pm on Thursday.
Emergency services, including police and firefighters, remain at the scene, however it has been confirmed that cordons surrounding the campus have now been removed.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "The package sent to the university campus in Dumfries was found to contain material that posed no risk to the public.
"We would like to thank the public for their co-operation and ask them to remain vigilant."
It comes after a controlled explosion was carried out at the university in Glasgow on Thursday after a suspicious package was discovered.
Police are linking that to three explosive devices found in London the previous day.
Princes Street in Edinburgh was also closed on Thursday after a suspicious package was discovered at the Halifax bank.
Police later said the package contained clothing and posed no threat to the public.
