Explosive find for Wimbledon treasure hunters

Bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion on Wimbledon Common when a brother and sister unearthed an unexploded WWII hand grenade without its locking pin.

Tony Burcombe, 30, and Lara Sparrow, 37, were scouring an area near to the windmill with their metal detectors when they made the explosive find at 5pm on Tuesday, March 27.

Mr Burcombe said: “We had been there all day and we were nearly at the windmill in the woods. It was getting toward early evening and my sister shouted over to me.
