Police Spokeswoman Amber Alert

Newport police spokeswoman Amber Alert has announced that the road between Whippingham and Ryde has been closed due to the discovery of a men's work boot on the tarmac near Binstead.

The boot is a tan leather full lace-up possibly with a steel toe estimated to be size 10. Alert says "the roadway was closed immediately upon receiving report of the boot and barricades put up".

A door-to-door search by Newport Police, dubbed Project Cinderella, was launched on the east side of the island over the weekend to determine the owner of the mysterious boot but met with little but head-shaking over tea and biscuits for their good efforts.

Police say that the boot may be the work of terrorists and have requested a bomb squad from the mainland investigate the boot further. Residents are urged to keep a safe distance from the boot until the risk has been identified and mitigated in a proper fashion.

Local dignitaries will be greeting the bomb disarmament specialists upon arrival in Yarmouth Harbour on Tuesday.
