Army experts have defused a World War II bomb in east London allowing dozens of families to return home.
A defensive wall was built around the device
Up to 50 residents in Palmers Road, Bethnal Green, were forced to leave when the 500lb (226kg) device was uncovered by builders on Monday.
A bomb disposal team declared the bomb safe overnight on Wednesday and the police cordon was lifted.
A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said the bomb was still in place but had been successfully defused.
Army experts built a defensive wall around the bomb as they worked for two days to make the device safe.
