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.?
