Suspected WWI Bomb Found in North Wales

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was mobilised to an area near Dolwyddelan in Conwy, North Wales after the discovery of a suspect device.  It was confirmed as a WWI-era munition and disposed of in a controlled explosion in a local field.

Large tracts of rural land in Wales were used for military training during both World Wars and such discoveries periodically occur in remote areas.
