Cordon removed after artillery shell found to be for training

Residents were asked to stay in their homes following the discovery of an artillery shell on Teesside allotments.

A cordon was set up round the site in Thornaby following the discovery of the shell shortly after 10:00 GMT.

Cleveland Police said residents living in up to 30 homes in Thornaby Road were asked to stay indoors.

But a bomb disposal unit from Catterick later confirmed the shell was a training round and removed it from the site.
