"Thames Valley Police attended woodland off Exlade Street yesterday (20/7) along with Explosive Ordnance Disposal technicians. Several controlled explosions took place yesterday to make the items safe.
"Exlade Street between the Highwayman pub and the slip road to the A4074 is currently closed while a cordon is in place in the area, and is likely to remain closed for some time while enquiries continue.
