Birmingham South Response police had to enlist the help of a bomb disposal unit when two World War I shells were found at an address in Northfield this afternoon.

The pair of WWI 4.5 inch Howitzer shells were found at an address Tessall Lane during a garage clearance.

The Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit safely removed the shells and took them away for destruction.
