A bomb squad was called to a St Albans street next to a major secondary school yesterday.

Herts Police say they were called at 1.48pm on Wednesday to Central Drive, one road over from Beaumont School.

They were called after a suspicious device was found among rubble during building work.

The property and a neighbouring property were evacuated and an explosive ordnance disposal team from the Ministry of Defence came to take the device away.

It has been said the explosive was a World War Two-era bomb.
