A museum was temporarily closed this morning after a live bomb was 'delivered' to it. Gravel was dredged up from the seabed to fill a cofferdam around HMS Alliance at the Royal Submarine Museum in Gosport. But when it was delivered staff noticed a live Bofors shell sticking out of the gravel.
A Royal Navy bomb squad was dispatched to take the shell away for a controlled explosion. Some visitors were turned away until the museum was re-opened at 10:30am today. Bofors shells were commonly used by surface ships during the Second World War.
