Another worker on site, Aram Mahmoud, said he recognised the explosive instantly due to growing up in Iraq. Mr Mahmoud said: “We were putting up concrete posts and we were digging and we found a rocket. “We called the police immediately and they came round. “I knew it was a rocket because I’m from Iraq. We ran off from there and we found a bomb here instead.” The bomb disposal team told Mr Mahmoud that the device was “very very dangerous”. He left Iraq 20 years ago because of Sadam Hussein’s leadership, and has seen these kind of devices before in his home country.
