THE D-Day Museum car park was cordoned off this morning after a bag containing suspicious substances was found.
CCTV operators from Portsmouth City Council spotted a man dumping the bag, which was full of jars, and taking pictures of it, at around 4.15am.
The operators called police who called in Hazmat, the specially-trained Hazardous Materials team from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.
After almost three hours they confirmed the substance was safe and the bag was removed for more tests to find out exactly what it is.
Glyn Morris, control room supervisor for Hampshire Police, said: ‘There was no contamination. It has now been called off but they still don’t know what it is.
‘We were called out at 4.16am. Quite a few units were sent. The Hazmat team, have confirmed whatever it is, is safe.’
No arrests have been made.
