New Milton-Barton on Sea. By Chris March. RESIDENTS had a rude awakening this morning (Tuesday) when an unexploded wartime bomb was detonated after being unearthed at a Barton holiday site. A British Army bomb disposal team from Tidworth carried out the controlled explosion of the device at Hoburne Naish Holiday Park, off the A337 Christchurch Road, just after 7am. The alarm had been raised at 6.25pm last night following the discovery as contractors worked on a new development. Police cordoned off the site and kept the scene guarded overnight. A spokesperson for Hoburne Naish said: “We can confirm that a controlled detonation has been carried out on an unexploded World War Two bomb after being uncovered on the park’s new development.
If you find anything that appears to be an explosive device, do not touch it, leave it where it is and call the police. We will contact the appropriate agencies to properly dispose of the item.
