Army bomb disposal team make Kerry scene safe

An Army bomb disposal team was called to a County Council Lab in Kerry this evening to deal with some potentially unstable picric acid.

The acid can become unstable when crystallised - and the bomb experts were called after staff at the Tralee laboratory raised concerns.

The team stabilised the acid and removed it to a safe location, where it was destroyed by a controlled explosion.

The scene was declared safe at 6pm.
