World War Two bomb diffused in Hong Kong

Hong Kong police have successfully defused a 2,000 pound (900kg) bomb from World War Two, described as the biggest wartime bomb to be found in the city.

More than 2,200 people were evacuated when the bomb was found in a construction site in the city's Happy Valley district on Thursday afternoon.

Workers were digging the structure for a new hotel when they came across the unexploded device.

This footage from the construction site shows the bomb in an upright position, surrounded by bomb disposal equipment.
