Leicester, United Kingdom Two hand grenades were removed from River Soar at frog Island within hours of each other. Army EOD had barely left the scene with the first device, discovered by magnet fishermen, when a second was discovered.
Part of a bridge over the river was cordoned off while Leicestershire Police guarded the first explosive device as it sat in a bucket awaiting proper disposal. At the same time, a magnet fisherman on the other bank of the river found the 2nd hand grenade. Both grenades are suspected to be WWII-era devices.
