Police closed off Lichfield Road after bomb found in garden

A suspected Second World War bomb was discovered in a garden in Grimsby.

Police closed off Lichfield Road and evacuated residents. A 100-metre cordon is in place.

The bomb is believed to have been found in a back garden of a property in Evelyn Grove North, a small cul-de-sac leading off the main street. Bomb disposal officers recovered the device and took it to Cleethorpes, where it was detonated this evening.

Dozens of residents were evacuated from their homes. A warm space was set up at the Spiders Web pub in Carr Lane, but they were allowed to return this evening.

Police at the scene asked people to stay away from the area.
