'World War II bomb' found in city
The city was expected to be sealed off throughout the night
It was found at the Belgrade Plaza development in Upper Well Street. Police said the device seemed genuine but it was not clear if it was live.
Eight junctions of the ring road were shut and offices evacuated.The city will remain closed through the night as explosives teams attempt to defuse it.
So there was a bomb scare- I heard the sirens but I was oblivious to it. People in Liquid Bar not a hundred yards away were evacuated but not us. So were we in Beauchamp House not vulnerable too? How come residents in our block were not evacualted?
Added later- what is scary is that there is a clip of my road in the video and I was oblivious inside the building!
