Controlled explosion in Norwich on two war-time bombs
A controlled explosion has been carried out on two war-time bombs discovered by workmen in Norwich.
The shells were found while the workmen were excavating for a new car park at 15:00 GMT on Wednesday in Bowers Avenue, Mile Cross.
Army bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion of the devices at 12:45 GMT on Thursday.
Nearby homes were evacuated and roads cordoned off during the explosion but people were allowed back later.
An initial attempt to detonate the devices misfired, but the explosion was carried out during a second run.
Residents were taken to the nearby Norman Centre on Thursday morning after police asked them to leave their homes.
Bomb disposal experts at Mile Cross had described the devices as "low risk".
