Bomb disposal experts built earth banks around the first device
Dozens of people have been allowed to return home after two bombs found near a Suffolk school were made safe.

Explosive experts were alerted when a device was discovered during an archaeological dig near Kesgrave High School, in Ipswich, on Friday.

The second device was found as experts tried to make the first bomb safe.

Both WWII devices have now been neutralised and will be detonated at Orford Ness Island alongside a US naval flare which was found on the beach.

The 8in phosphorous flare is said to be very volatile and dangerous if handled.
