UK Playground Feared to Harbor UXO

Moray, United Kingdom Aerial photographs found during an archival research revealed a residential park was actually constructed over an area that was once an Army WWII era camp. The playground actually overlapped a former trench training area. Concerns that UXO were never screened for or cleared during construction of the park and playground led to widespread fears among the residents.

A contractor was hired to conduct an investigation at the site. To date, only scrap metal has been located, but parents in the area have expressed concern that children have been playing on ground that could house explosive threats. Local officials maintain the safety of the park and no closures or evacuations have taken place.
