A suspected bomb has been disposed of after being discovered in a Suffolk village just a few yards from where a similar device led to an evacuation yesterday.

Suffolk police received reports that a Second World War mortar device had been found at an address in The Street, Walberswick, at around 3.50pm this afternoon.

It follows a discovery yesterday when officers set up a 100 metre exclusion zone before a controlled explosion was carried out by the bomb disposal experts.

Officers had set up a 100 metre cordon, which has since been removed.
