House Clearance Drops a Bomb Shell

grenade house clearance sheffieldRisbury, a small village not normally known for interruptions, near Leominster, but on Thursday (10th September), this sleepy village was strangely interrupted. A house clearance team were undergoing a house clearance in Risbury when they found a World War II grenade. An area of Risbury was cordoned off when the grenade was cited amidst belongings in the middle of the house clearance and Police were summoned immediately to the address.  A 25 metre radius around the house was taped off henceforth. Bomb disposal experts from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) attended the scene extremely promptly and assessed the bomb.   Luckily, for this little village, the bomb assessment found the bomb not to be live and EOD announced that the grenade was empty. This story could have had such a different ending if the bomb had not been so, with dramatic impact for both the house owners and indeed this little village. But it was all thanks to the house clearance team who knew exactly what to do when they spotted this potential danger.
