Unexploded shell in Brighton removed by bomb squad
RESIDENTS were told to “stay indoors” after police were called to the scene of a suspected unexploded mortar shell.
The explosives ordnance disposal team removed the shell from the scene, to allow for a controlled detonation to take place safely in other places.
A police spokesman said that there was “no risk to the public”.
He also said it was believed that the shell was “innocently bought by a member of the public”.
Brighton and Hove Police thanked the public “for their patience while road closures were in place”.
