'Grenade' discovery sparks road closure in Stourbridge

Dudley | News | Published:

The discovery of what was feared to be an old grenade under a mattress sparked the closure of a road in Stourbridge today.

Experts were called to examine the find, which was made shortly before 10am by members of the River Stour Clear Water Project.

It was discovered under a mattress in Ludge Bridge Rook, off Wollescote Road, Wollescote.

Officers closed Wollescote Road as a precautionary measure, and drivers were urged to avoid the area.

But at around 2pm, the all-clear was given and the road was opened again when it was confirmed the item was in fact harmless.

Reporter Andrew Turton was at the scene:
