Phil,
The Home Office has produced a booklet

"Bombs, Protecting People & Property"

Published in 1994 by the Home Office Public Relation Branch.

This would help I think

Regards,

Ed

For my sins I used to be a licenced bomb search officer and as such I concur with the previous post and would add: Contact your local crime prevention officer for the free publication and a follow up publication (that name of which I can't remember) that dealt with the aftermath of the London and Warrington bombings and the 'business' response, I'm fairly sure it also covers the insurance risks etc. In addition your crime prevention officer should also have videos available with relevant information. If you don't get any joy, give me a ring on 01472 870745.

Phil,

You can download a copy of the latest version of the document that Ed recommended at www.homeoffice.gov.uk/oicd/bombs.pdf.

Though I would suggest you make a cup of tea while you are waiting as it takes some time to download, but well worth the wait.

If you have any problems contact me and I will email a copy to you.

Regards
