“During the search, a small device was located and expert advice was sought from EOD officers from Nottingham to establish its nature. “The device was removed safely and further enquiries are ongoing into the circumstances.”
Those arrested include two men, aged 59 years and 22 years and a woman 51 years.
They were taken for interview at Skegness Police Station.
They have all since been released on police bail until October 30 pending further enquiries.
