Police are currently investigating reports of a quantity of bombs found at a waste recycling site in Suffolk.

Officers were initially called at approximately 12.10pm today after three devices were discovered in amongst some scrap metal at the site, just outside of Ipswich.

Bomb disposal experts and police officers attended the site and confirmed that the devices were air drop bombs - potentially from World War Two.

The devices were not believed to contain explosives and have been taken away by bomb disposal experts.

At approximately 3pm, police were again called following reports that more of the devices had been found. The bomb disposal squad and officers from Suffolk Police are currently on scene and there is not believed to be any threat to members of public.
