Police said there was no indication that it contained explosives but carried out a "controlled explosion" as a "precautionary measure." ABC's Matt McGarry was at the hospital and reported that there were actually several controlled explosions. Police didn't actually blow up the suspicious vehicle. They were most likely just small detonations designed to set off any larger suspected bomb which could be in the vehicle." On Monday 2nd July the access road to the Royal Alexandra Hospital was closed just before 3pm. A section of the main road outside the hospital was also shut off to traffic. ABC's Nick Watt reported that police confirmed three controlled explosions were carried out on another "suspect vehicle" parked at the hospital.
