More than 40 World War Two grenades found buried in a Hampshire garden

Watch moment controlled explosion was carried out on grenades

More than 40 World War Two grenades have been discovered in a Hampshire village. 

Homeowner James Osborne was told by a landscape gardener, who was doing work on his garden in Bramdean, that he'd discovered the grenades that had been buried for more than 70 years.

A wall of water was put around a skip containing the 42 phosphorus grenades before a bomb disposal team carried out a controlled explosion.

The noise and smoke shocked the normally peaceful village near Alresford.

Police took to social media to let people know not to be alarmed by the sound of an explosion.
