EOD Gets a "Two for One" on UXO Response

Warrington, England EOD teams were called to a construction site in Warrington twice in a 12-hour time period. After the first WWII UXO was discovered (shown below), the Royal Logistic Corps Bomb Disposal team was called in and unfortunately had to wait overnight before being able to detonate the device. For nearby homes, this meant evacuation; some to family and others into provided hotels. The nearby street remained closed overnight with a guard posted overnight.


Shortly after the first detonation the following day, another UXO was found on the construction site. Luckily, the EOD team was still on-site and were able to detonate the second item swiftly. Twitter reports from the police stated that everything went well with both detonations and there were no injuries.
