Bomb threat empties club

A BOMB threat forced the Goulburn Workers Club to be evacuated last night.

An anonymous male caller made the threat at 8.15pm, causing club management to evacuate up to 150 patrons and staff, duty manager Michael Murphy told the Post.

Police from Goulburn and the district swarmed on the night spot and searched the facility for just over an hour before declaring it safe at 9.35pm.

They closed access to Clifford St and McKell Place. Ambulance and Fire Brigade were also on hand.

NSW Fire and Rescue and Ambulance were on standby as police searched the Goulburn Workers Club last night following a bomb threat.
