According to The Sun,Hotspur Way was evacuated this after noon after a suspected World War Two bomb was found.
A Metropolitan Police statement said cordons and road closures were put in place while specialist officers assessed the device.
The statement added that “A few residential homes were also evacuated as a precaution”,
A photo uploaded to Twitter which was later deleted showed police and ambulances swarming the area.
The article continued to say the device was removed and the incident was stood down.
A club spokesman said: “An unidentified piece of metal was unearthed on the Training Centre site earlier this afternoon and, as a precaution, the Metropolitan Police cordoned off the surrounding area”
We moved into the Hotspur Way training centre in 2012.
The impressive facility covers 77 acres and includes 15 grass pitches, a covered artificial pitch, pool and hydrotherapy complex, altitude room, gym, and rehab facilities
A frightening incident indeed for all concerned. The first team were on their way to Huddersfield so thankfully preparations for tomorrow’s game weren’t affected.
