Bomb Shell Dropped During House Clearance

    The small village of Risbury is not normally known for its interruptions, but on Thursday (10th September), there was a strange interruption in this quiet village. A house clearance team undergoing a house clearance, near Leominster, discovered a World War II grenade. Thus, resulted in an area of Risbury being cordoned off when the grenade was spotted during the house clearance and the Police were duly summoned to the required address. A radius of 25 metres around the house was quickly taped off, the house emptied of people and members of the public held back at a safe distance. Bomb disposal experts from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) attended the scene extremely promptly, in order to assess the bomb.   Thankfully, during assessment, the bomb was found not to be live and the EOD announced that the grenade was actually empty. If it hadn’t been for the quick thinking of the house removal team, this story could have had such a different ending with a very dramatic result for both the house owner and the once, sleepy village.
