Emergency services were called out to New Street on Tuesday June 2nd.

Police officers attended the scene after an item was found at the back door of the Masonic Lodge in Penryn at around 11.10am.

A Royal Navy Explosive Ordnance team made the device safe after a 20 metre cordon was put in place.

Devon and Cornwall Police say it though to be an 'improvised incendiary device'.

They're appealing to anyone who may have CCTV footage in the area of New Street and the B3292 to get in touch.
