A plasterer was left stunned after pulling an unexploded bomb out of a skip with his bare hands. Jamie Williams, 30, had been helping a friend clear out his garden and believes the explosive must have picked up by a JCB digger.
He immediately knew what the device was, having recognised it from his history lessons at school. Jamie said: ‘I pulled it out of the skip with my hands and I thought it was a lump of metal or a brick. I looked at it and knew straight away what it was and put it on the wall.’
He then called the police, who cordoned off the area, before the the Royal Navy bomb squad removed the explosive.
