Bomb squad called as mortar shell found in Quorn garden.
A man said he and his family “could have been vaporised” after discovering a rusty “bottle” pulled from a garden shelter was a live World War Two bomb. Peter Cawdell, who lives in Quorn, Leicestershire, had been clearing out the mysterious concrete structure with his daughter when they found the relic. Bomb disposal teams were called to Forest Road on Monday. Mr Cawdell said at first they were “excited” but on Tuesday “it dawned on us how dangerous it could have been”.
