disposal team declares grenade safe after drama in Highbridge
have thanked companies in Highbridge for their patience after
roads around the Isleport Industrial Park were closed for over
three hours on Thursday (September 13th) after a grenade was found
in waste at the town's recycling centre.
army bomb disposal team was called in from Didcot to investigate
cordoned roads off around the Bennett Road centre at 3pm, halting
traffic through the area until 6.20pm.
The army bomb disposal team confirmed the device was a "deactivated
grenade" and it was taken away by the team.
spokesman Wayne Baker told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Police were
called at around 3pm to reports of a suspicious object being found.
A bomb disposal team was called and roads were closed as a precaution."
