What happened this afternoon in Ylium in Les Sables-d’Olonne? It was not yet 4 p.m. on Tuesday, October 5, when customers of the shopping center were asked to leave the building.

According to witnesses, a bomb threat required the complete evacuation of Ylium.

The alarmed police secured access to the Leclerc center and soon caused traffic problems around the eponymous roundabout.

It is strongly recommended not to approach the parking lot, which is closed.

According to the Sables-d’Olonne police:

An hour ago there was a call from the mall. A dog team is expected to clear the doubt.


The warning was lifted just after 8 p.m., because the dog brigade had ruled out any danger. The shops can open again on Wednesday morning.
