More SIP Grenades Found on Trowbridge Building Site

Further Self-Igniting Phosphorus (SIP) grenades have been found on a building site in Trowbridge, three months after a similar discovery in the same location.

The grenades, standard issue for the Home Guard during WWII, were removed for safe disposal by an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team.

Such finds are fairly common in the UK and when 1No. SIP grenade is found, it is normally the case that a cache will be uncovered.
