If they can hang about until the Nato conference maybe they can get Angela Merkel to take it back home with her....of course it could be Yank bomb...those flyboys wern't too fussy after ten pints and an injection of liquid Dexedrine. Drop anything anywhere in WW2. Like my Aunty Freda.

Workmen erecting a glass front to the shop were digging and unearthed a 'shiny metal object' described as 'looking like a large World War Two bomb'
Well they would "know" wouldn't they!

All that disruption, loss of livelihoods, income an various resources for a chunk of metal...............

Not a bomb?! Next you'll be telling us there's no Santa and Nick Clegg lies to get elected! We don't read your paper to be told there's not a WW2 bomb in Newport after your ace reporter printed a big list of them! All good ones.

We need a world class bomb to put us on the map....or take us off it. Time for the Argus to launch an
appeal...

It was confirmed by someone from the Ordnance - therefore a professional who you would think would know the difference between a piece of scrap and a real bomb. All in all the bomb squad were there about 7hrs to confirm it wasnt a bomb now I find that quite unsettling.

What did you think they should have done? Turned up and kicked it a few times to establish whether it was unexploded ordinance? Maybe there's a IPhone app? Personally, I want them to take as much time as they feel they need. Sorry if some people were late for their tea or coronation Street but one hasty decision could mean the EOD team never see their families again.
