I’ve just sent you an update on that St Albans Sinkhole, and now here is news on 2 items capable of creating their own big ’oles:-
Some people collect the strangest things...
An Army explosives ordinance disposal team was congratulating itself this morning after, at 07:45 GMT, safely blowing-up an 8kg mortar shell that had been found in a garden at Park Avenue, Potters Bar yesterday (Sunday 25 October 2015). Their pleasure, however, was premature, as the Herts. police called them back to the same address; the owner had gone back to her gardening & found a 2nd device identical to the first!
The team are now both preparing for a second controlled explosion + making checks for further devices across the entire garden. I guess that that is one way to get help with the digging.
