4,000 Apple staff evacuated amid security alert

Thousands of workers at Apple have returned to work following a security alert at its operations in Cork.

Up to 4,000 staff at locations in Holyhill, Lavitt's Quay and Model Farm Road were ordered off site for more than two hours as a precaution.

Apple declined to comment on reports that a bomb threat had been made online.

The technology giant said it was co-operating with gardai and three sites were affected, with staff allowed to return to work shortly before 12.30pm.
