A World War 2 bomb was found in Richmond earlier today.

Police were called at 11:20am following reports that a possible World War 2 bomb had been found in the garden of an Audley Road home.

A Met spokesman said: "Specialist officers assessed the item which was found to be an inert device and unable to pose any danger to the public.

"The item will be safely disposed of."

As a precaution, people nearby were evacuated and roads were closed off, although these cordons have since been lifted.
