A police station in Wythenshawe, Manchester had to be evacuated after an elderly woman walked in with a Second World War hand grenade.
The elderly woman walked into the Police Station with the grenade and two rounds of ammunition which she found in her loft after her husband’s death.
Police took precautions and the station was evacuated, and bomb disposal officers were called to examine the grenade.
Nearby residents were warned to stay indoors, the area was cordoned and the nearby road closed as precautions.
The Police have advised the public to call the police in case they find any hand grenade rather than pick them up and walk in the police station.
