Metal detectors' grenade drama

A CHARITY metal detecting event went with a bang – literally – after a live and unstable Second World War grenade was uncovered.

The event on Sunday had been organised by Anton Rotary Club member Mike Bonner to raise money for Andover Young Carers, the club’s charity this year.

It was a huge success with about 100 people turning up to do some metal detecting on a couple of fields at Penton Mewsey when one of the detectors uncovered the grenade.

Mr Bonner said: “One of our Rotarians is ex-Army and he realised that it still had its charge intact. So we called the police and they called out the Royal Logistic Corps’ bomb disposal team.”
