BP offices hit by mail bomb scare

Testing nerves at surrounding tech firms

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Technology workers were disturbed this morning by what appears to have been a hoax bomb at a business park near Heathrow.

The bomb scare hit BP's Stockley Park offices, which were evacuated and surrounded by police. A spokesman for the oil giant said a suspect jiffy bag had been taken away from the facility for further investigation.

The Metropolitan Police said it does not comment on hoaxes or bomb scares.

As well as the BP administrative office, Stockley Park is home to several high profile technology firms, including Apple, EDS, and Adobe. Hosting firm Rackspace's car park was taken over by police, who patrolled the park.

The correspondence received by the Register highlights the level of jitteriness in the technology industry following the bombing campaign apparently aimed at firms involved in road charging. ®
