Armed police join hunt for man
Armed police and dogs were used during a search for a man following a security alert at Swindon train station.

Wiltshire Police said the station was closed for 90 minutes on Friday evening after reports a man was boarding a train carrying plastic explosives.

A police search of the train and platform areas failed to find anyone matching the description given to officers.

The service was then allowed to continue to London's Paddington.
