British EOD Unit Responds After Bomb Found in Basement

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."
