Detectorist tries to sell grenade at Boot fair!!

Just been reading a story about a Metal Detectorist who unwittingly tried to sell a hand grenade at a car boot on Sunday in Forstal Road, Aylesford.

The guy, who was French, had travelled from France to the car boot sale. He had found the grenades whilst metal detecting.

It was just before lunch that the Bomb disposal squad arrived, who ceased the grenades after setting up a 50m cordon. They were later made safe, in the nearby quarry.

All worked out well in the end, but things could have turned out so different.
