Two suspected unexploded mortar finds resulted in part of the village of Upper Heyford near Bicester, Oxfordshire being cordoned off. The area was the site of Royal Air Force (RAF) Upper Heyford, a former American air base, much of which is now being redeveloped for housing.

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was in attendance at the scene to dispose of the device.
