Houses were evacuated after two mortar shells, which are believed to be from World War II, were found in a Lincolnshire garden.

The discovery was made in a garden on Darnes Close in Bourne on Friday.

A bomb disposal team from RAF Wittering recovered the items and disposed of them at a quarry near Boston.

Seven houses were evacuated during the incident and the area was closed off until the shells had been removed.
