Bomb threat in Madrid declared false alarm as workers told they can return to work

SOME 2,000 workers have been told they can return to work following an alleged bomb threat on a skyscraper in Madrid. 

According to ABC, the supposed threat against the Australian Embassy inside the Torrespacio tower was a false alarm.

Sources told the newspaper the threat may have been caused by the triggering of a fire alarm.

Police, who are remaining on site, are investigating the events after carrying out a search for explosives with sniffer dogs.

The building, which also houses the British, Canadian and Dutch embassies, is one of the four towers of the Paseo de la Castellana.
