The 'device' which sparked an evacuation of shops in Kent was handed in to a charity store.
Peter Higgs, the manager of the Oxfam store on Sevenoaks High Street, said it was handed in this morning and looked like a 'very large bullet'.
Kent Police were called shortly before 11am this morning. They enforced a cordon, which has since been lifted.
Mr Higgs told ITV News Meridian that two community support police officers remained at the scene. The item is due to be removed.
