Cambridgeshire, England Mildenhall Police set up a cordon in a neighborhood after a WWII ordnance item was discovered in a basement in Isleham.
In a social media post, police said, "We are currently dealing with a historic unexploded WWII ordnance device in the Isleham Marina area. Police are in attendance and we are putting a 50-meter cordon into place. The bomb disposal team are currently on route."
An EOD team from Colchester responded to the scene of the heavily corroded three-inch mortar round. The Ministry of Defence confirmed that the explosive was a "substitute" device and the cordon was lifted.
Mildenhall Police thanked the public for their assistance with the matter. A follow up post quipped, "Not what you expect to find in your basement."
