West Sussex, England Employees at an English real estate agency discovered something frightening as they prepared to move to a new location. While in the basement of the office building, employees found a grenade with pin in place, wedged between the floor and a pipe.
The grenade was photographed and the building and surrounding workplaces were evacuated for safety. The photo was sent to EOD personnel for identification. An EOD team arrived on scene and was able to verify that the grenade was inert and hence did not present an explosive threat. Although inert, EOD removed the munition from the office basement for disposal.
