A bomb squad has safely disposed of an unexploded WWII shell which was found at a building site in Lincolnshire.

The device - believed to be the nose cone of a plane-mounted bomb - was uncovered at the former GW Gedney site in Bicker.

Police called a team of experts from RAF Wittering near Stamford, who removed it on Wednesday evening.

The bomb had retained its detonation pin and mounting bracket, said the Lincolnshire force.
