Suspicious package left at MP’s home
POLICE are responding to reports of a suspicious package being found at the home of federal politician David Gillespie on the Mid North Coast in NSW.
The bomb squad were called to the Nationals MP's home on Musico Road at Sancrox, west of Port Macquarie, after a suspicious cylinder was found on the front gate, according to reports on 2GB.
The cylinder was reportedly accompanied by a flag with foreign writing.
Mr Gillespie's office told the radio show that the minister is OK and believes the writing on the flag is Latin.
NSW Police told news.com.au that an exclusion zone has been set out around to property as officers work to identify the item.
"There is no apparent risk to the community," a police spokesperson said.
Authorities are now investigating the motives behind the package.
More to come.
