Security measures implemented at Campbellton Regional Hospital following threatening e-mail

Staff at the Campbellton Regional Hospital were on high alert earlier this week due to a potential threat.

Vitalite Health Network's Thomas Lizotte says police were contacted and access to the hospital was controlled on Monday and Tuesday night after an e-mail was received containing 'aggressive language'.

The Acadie-Nouvelle reports the e-mail contained no specific threat, nor did it target any particular individual or department.

The extra security measure has since been lifted.

RCMP continue to investigate.
