    STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS WERE IN FORCE AT MILFORD HAVEN IN WALES TODAY (SATURDAY) FOR A VISIT BY THE QUEEN AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE ROYAL FAMILY.

    THE QUEEN, WITH THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH, PRINCE CHARLES AND PRINCESS ANNE, ARRIVED THIS MORNING AT MILFORD HAVEN ON THE ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA, TO OPEN A NEW OIL REFINERY. NEARLY TWO HUNDRED POLICE AND REGIONAL CRIME SQUAD DETECTIVES KEPT A CLOSE WATCH ON THE ROYAL PARTY IN CASE OF DEMONSTRATIONS BY WELSH EXTREMISTS.

    HOWEVER THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS AND THE OPENING WENT OFF AS PLANNED. POLICE REVEALED LATER, THAT THERE HAD BEEN A BOMB HOAX. AN ANONYMOUS CALLER HAD SAID A BOMB WAS DUE TO EXPLODE IN THE REFINERY WHILE THE QUEEN WAS THERE. THE AREA WAS SEARCHED BUT NO TRACE OF A BOMB WAS FOUND.
