AN area of Caerphilly was cordoned off for a few hours this morning – after a device was found in a shed.

Gwent Police received a call at 10.40am after a “historic device” was found in a garden shed in the Conway Court area of Cefn Fforest.


A police cordon was put in place for 100m around the area, with homes evacuated and the device – which looked to be a hand grenade – was examined by the Explosives Ordinance Disposal (EOD) who found it to be deactivated.

It has now been taken away from the scene and the cordon has been lifted.
