Last Sunday, I went to drive through Moreton cross and found all the roads were cordened off by police. Found out the reason today:
ARMY bomb disposal experts have successfully detonated the world war bomb that was discovered in Moreton this morning.
The bomb had been moved to Moreton Common and was detonated at 1.05pm.
Workmen discovered the 14" shell this morning while carrying out roadworks in Maryland Lane.
Dozens of buildings were evacuated as police cordoned off main access routes for over three hours, including Pasture Road, Pasture Avenue, Moreton Cross and Maryland Lane.
One eye-witness said: "This is the most exciting thing that has happened in Moreton for a long time."
Lmao, I agree its the most excitement Moreton has had for a long time haha!
