A bomb threat on Apple's European headquarters have meant that up to 4,000 staff there have been evacuated.

Three different plants were completely evacuated after a possible security threat, according to the Irish Independent. Several threatening emails had been received by the company, the paper reported.

Irish military staff are at the site, though it is not clear whether any suspicious packages have yet been found. But police reported that a number of plants had been evacuated in response to the threats.

The company has its European headquarters in Ireland, which include both offices and manufacturing plants.
