A bomb disposal team was called to a recycling centre in Nottinghamshire after a World War II grenade was found.

The grenade was discovered in a scrap metal bin by staff at the Beeston Rylands site, in Lilac Grove, at about 15:00 GMT.

The bomb disposal team said the fuse had been removed and so was not dangerous.

A 100m safety cordon put in place by Nottinghamshire Police has been lifted.
