A bomb threat at the Victoria Law Courts has been cleared and people are being allowed back into the building.
Victoria police announced they were working to resolve a police incident shortly before 11 a.m. and asked people to avoid the area. Both Courtenay Street and Burdett Avenue were blocked to vehicle and pedestrian traffic between Blanshard and Quadra Streets for several hours while officers investigated the building.
Two police dogs were also called to the scene.
Just before 1 p.m., VicPD confirmed that they had cleared the building and found no threat. The courthouse has reopened.
