A Bomb in the Bedroom

After 40 years, a man in England decided that it might not be safe to keep a live World War I shell in his bedroom.

Police evacuated his neighbours in Abbeydale, Gloucester, while experts retrieved the bomb.

The man told officers it was a family heirloom which he had played with as a child.

He said: "To be honest I'm a little embarrassed about the whole thing." [Link]
