Police on Wembley Stadium unexploded WWII bomb

An unexploded World War Two bomb, uncovered by builders near Wembley Stadium, is to be moved to a location where a controlled explosion can be carried out.

Homes and businesses have been evacuated and the Army has built a blast wall around the bomb in case it goes off accidentally.

The 50kg (110lb) device, thought to date from the early 1940s German air raids on London, was found on Thursday.

Wembley Stadium said its weekend play-off games would be unaffected.

Chief Supt Michael Gallagher gave more details on the potential danger the bomb posed.
