A BOMB disposal unit was called to Worcestershire for the third time in a week.

Experts from Explosive Ordnance Disposal were called to Colwall after a suspected unexploded bomb was found in a garden near the Post Office last night.

The B4218 Walywn Road was shut while experts assessed the situation.

Malvern police said the bomb was found in a garden near the Post Office in Colwall.

They said a 200m cordon was in place, which included a section of Walwyn Road.

Access to the property was restricted while neighbours were made aware of the situation and a cordon was put in place.

Army officers were in the garden yesterday afternoon and were watched by a small crowd as they removed equipment from their truck.

Last night, the road appeared to have reopened although no information had been given by police as to how the situation had been resolved.

It comes after the bomb squad were called the centre of Worcester on Tuesday, September 19 after magnet fishers pulled a device from the river Severn.

Roads were closed near Worcester Cathedral, including New Road and Worcester Bridge, and surrounding buildings were evacuated while army officers dealt with the bomb.

After x-raying it, it was taken to a field near Powick where a controlled explosion took place.

Meanwhile on Saturday, a section of Moat Crescent, Malvern, was closed for about an hour-and-a-half following the discovery of a hand grenade in a house.

The device is thought to have been found by relatives helping to tidy up a property in the street.

A cordon was in place from the car park for Moat Way to the junction with Shenstone Close.

Experts from Explosive Ordnance Disposal attended on that occasion as well and the grenade was made safe.
