A Victoria Police spokesman said the officers were conducting an urgent security clearance after receiving a report shortly before 5pm about an “unidentified item” in a vehicle on Grattan Street in Parkville.

The emergency services set up a restricted zone around the vehicle, which includes the main entrance to the hospital.

Motorists are advised to follow the instructions of the emergency services and turn safely into the center lane.
