Road closed after 'grenade' found in Stourbridge

Bomb disposal experts from West Midlands Police were called after a suspected grenade was found in a brook.

Officers were called to the Ludgebridge Brook, off Wollescote Road, Stoubridge, just before 11:00 BST on Sunday.

Wollescote Road was closed and drivers were urged to avoid the area.

The road was eventually reopened at 14:00 BST after the suspect item was revealed to be a car's suspension cylinder, the force said.

Sgt Phil Jones said they had to be cautious due to the suspicious nature of the item.
