World War Two grenades found by workmen in an East Yorkshire village have been destroyed by bomb disposal experts.

A cordon was put in place and nearby roads were closed in Willerby, near Hull, after the devices were uncovered.

Humberside Police said a number of devices had been found during building work on a new housing development near Great Gutter Lane on Monday afternoon.

Roads in the area have reopened but a cordon remains in place close to where the grenades were found.
