Recycling Center Closed after Multiple WWII Munition Finds

West Bromwich, United Kingdom Three suspected WWII bombs were recovered at a recycling center in West Bromwich where two other ordnance items were found just days before. The center has been closed until technicians can perform a sweep of the area where workers discovered the bombs.

The latest finds follow the discovery of two torpedoes found at the site three days earlier. A road was temporarily closed as an Army EOD unit responded to dispose of the munitions.

A West Midlands Police spokesperson reported, "Workers found three further suspected World War Two bombs at a recycling site on Giffords Way, West Bromwich at 9.50am on Thursday January 27. The Army Ordnance Disposal team removed the devices after examinations showed they posed no risk. Two other World War Two bombs which had been found by staff at the site were safely disposed of on Monday (January 24). We understand the site will now remain closed until a surveyor has attended to assess the land further."
