Show and Tell Shell

Southampton, United Kingdom Over 1,000 students were evacuated from a school after a student brought an ordnance item to school. The ten inch tip of a shell was brought in by a student who wanted to share the item during the school's commemorations of the Battle of the Somme, known as the bloodiest battle of WWI.

The student found the item on a family trip to a Dorset firing range. A teacher was rightfully worried about the safety of the shell and police were contacted. They evacuated the building, cordoned off the area and called in EOD. The item was confirmed to be part of an old military shell and was removed by EOD for disposal.
