Bomb disposal experts were called into the Monaco Grand Prix paddock on Thursday evening to dispose of a package reported as suspicious.

The device was disposed of courtesy of a small and controlled explosion near the entrance the media centre.

Bystanders were moved a safe distance away while the package – believed to contain electrical cables and equipment – was detonated.

Last year’s Grand Prix also featured a visit from the bomb disposal unit, which detonated a suspect package on the Sunday morning ahead of the race.
