A grenade has been found at a house near a school in Greater Manchester.

Police believe the device discovered on Sunny Bank Road in Bury is deactivated but have sent an army bomb disposal unit as a precaution.

The grenade was found as officers searched a property near Sunny Bank Primary School in an unrelated matter.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman confirmed officers executed a search warrant at 11:55 GMT on Thursday, and the house has been cordoned off.
