Army bomb disposal experts have been called to Carlisle after what is thought to be an unexploded bomb was dug up.

Workmen on a building site at Trinity School uncovered the device earlier.

Cumbria Police said a cordon had been put in place and the sports centre on Strand Road had been evacuated as a precaution.

A bomb disposal unit from Catterick Garrison, in North Yorkshire, is on its way to the scene.
