One of Bath's most famous landmarks was at the centre of a bomb alert today.

The bomb disposal team carried out a controlled explosion on what's thought to have been a very old incendiary device.

It was uncovered by someone clearing out one of the properties in The Circus. Police say it was destroyed as a safety precaution.
