Ipswich police station evacuated after false alarm

A FALSE fire alarm caused the evacuation of Ipswich police station yesterday morning.

Prisoners in the watch house had to be handcuffed and assisted out of the Ellenborough St complex about 9.10am.

Police officers and staff waited on the footpath outside until firefighters arrived and made sure the building was safe.

Police were unsure what triggered the alarm.

The nearby Ipswich Courthouse was not affected.

The building was given the all-clear about 9.45am.
