Are there any videos of these warnings? I'd quite like to see them.

Here's the only one I remember seeing on UTV warning of "incendiary devices". Someone in the comments says there was also one on the BBC called a "POLICE MESSAGE".

The social media feed was run by Rob Milburn, an ITV employee who is moving from Channel to Wales.

Hark, is that another archive-plundering series with Arfon Haines Davies I see before me?
