Hospital spokesman Chris Boyle said the threat was called in at 3:45 a.m. and the hospital was put into lockdown as a precaution.

The lockdown was lifted around 5:45 a.m., but police were still searching the grounds for anything suspicious.

Incoming patients were diverted to nearby hospitals and authorities blocked off Newell Rd. leading into Bristol Hospital.
