Police fear someone may have taken an explosive shell home with them after finding it on a wall. An urgent warning has been issued after the wartime ordnance was discovered in Dartford, Kent. The potentially dangerous item was found in a river by a fisherman but, after being left on a wall, it then disappeared before police attended.
Insp Lowndes added: “It is around a metre long and has a cylindrical shape and was left in a location near to the river until police arrived.
Allarme nella città di Dartford, la Polizia cerca di rintracciare un residente che avrebbe trovato abbandonata su un muro, quindi portata presso la propria abitazione una granata inesplosa e risalente alla seconda guerra mondiale. La Polizia ipotizza che l’ordigno (Una bomba d’areo tedesca), sia stato abbandonato da un pescatore o un hobbista della pesca con il magnete. (magnetofolle)
