Suspected explosive devices sent to armed forces recruitment offices bear “hallmarks of Northern Ireland-related terrorism”, a Number 10 spokeswoman has said.

One of the suspicious packages was stamped with an RoI (Republic of Ireland) postmark but no specific group has claimed responsibility for the attack, sources told the Press Association.

Prime Minister David Cameron chaired a meeting of the Government’s Cobra emergencies committee to discuss the suspicious parcels, which sources said were “crude” in design but “could have caused injury to others”.
