A controlled explosion has been carried out by army bomb disposal experts after a live World War Two mortar shell was found in Oxfordshire.
Thames Valley Police said the device was found outside a house in a residential area in Kidlington, near Oxford.
They said the explosion was carried out at a "safe location" on Saturday but did not reveal where it took place.
The force said the aftershock may have been felt in the village.
