Unexploded Bomb Found

Fire crews and bomb disposal teams were called to investigate suspected unexploded devices at the Household Waste Recycling Centre on Portman Walk in Ipswich.

The devices were found to be spent grenades, flares and ammunition and have now been removed and the centre is has been reopened to the public.

Suffolk County Council is urging Suffolk residents to take a sensible approach if they find objects which could contain explosives. The emergency services should always be the first call made.

County Councillor Colin Spence, Portfolio Holder for Public Protection said: “The situation today was handled by emergency services with great speed and professionalism. We would like to urge anybody who discovers what they believe to be an explosive device to contact the emergency services immediately, move away from the area and not handle the objects.
