Allotment Gardener Finds Shell in West Drayton

A resident found a suspected World War One (WWI) era artillery shell whilst digging in his allotment in West Drayton. It seems as if the recent lockdown has actually provoked more UXO finds, as people get to spend more time gardening!

Fortunately, there was no harm caused and an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was able to remove the device after the Police evacuated a single property.
