Thursday, November 17, 2016

Homes and a shopping centre were evacuated and ferry services halted from Portsmouth Harbour after a World War Two bomb was found in the water.

Trains between Portsmouth and Southsea and Portsmouth Harbour were also suspended.

The bomb, found by a dredger in the harbour at about 05:00 GMT, was towed out to sea and blown up at 16:00.
