A LIVERPOOL street at the centre of a terrorist plot was evacuated today.

Resident of Highgate Street, Wavertree, and a few surrounding streets were told to leave their home this afternoon.

People in the area said the order came after police sniffer dogs had been sent into a house that was being searched in the aftermath of the alleged failed Easter bomb plot.

One man said: ?The police came knocking on our door and nobody is now being allowed into the street.

?They haven?t said how long we are going to be out for.?

Bomb disposal experts are now at the scene.
