Bomb disposal teams deal with WWII canisters found in woods

Emergency services were called to the scene.

Army bomb disposal teams have dealt with a World War Two device found in Lincolnshire woodland over the weekend.

Lincolnshire Police told motorists to avoid the Roughton Woods area near Woodhall Spa on Sunday, October 1 as emergency services were called to the scene.

Explosive ordnance disposal specialists from the army came to deal with the device.

A police spokesperson said that they were some sort of canisters.

Earlier this year, a number of bombs were found near Woodland Drive in the village, which thankfully turned out to be inactive.
