‘Bomb’ van explodes as police retreat

`A van exploded in flames today after two Melbourne police officers noticed a suspicious device with wires attached inside.

The officers were on a routine patrol of Studley Park about 2.45am when they saw the white Ford Transit van in a car park near the boathouse.

After discovering the van had been reported stolen yesterday, they looked inside.

A police spokeswoman told AAP they saw “suspicious” bags with wires attached and moments later, after they withdrew and called for back-up, the van blew up.’
