BOMB disposal officers have been working at a Suffolk pub where a woman was found stabbed to death last week.

Police officers carrying out an investigation into the murder of Sharon Green, 53, found what is suspected to be live hand grenades and a live landmine at the Old Bell in Marlesford just after 1pm.

A cordon was put in place and officers were evacuated from the pub while army bomb disposal officers worked on the scene.

Mrs Green's 59-year-old husband Paul was last night charged by police with the murder of his wife. He appeared at Ipswich Crown Court today for a preliminary hearing but was remanded to the Norvic Clinic in Norwich for assessment under section 35 of the Mental Health Act. Before his admission to the clinic he will be held at Norwich Prison.
