The bomb disposal unit was called in following the discovery of a suspected explosive device in a St Albans street.

Police officers cordoned off Salisbury Avenue while experts examined the item, which had been found in a garden.

It was subsequently discovered that the artefact was in fact remnants of anĀ 19th century shell which was not live and posed no risk to the public.
