Wartime bomb closes railway line





A World War II bomb caused a busy railway line in East Yorkshire to be closed after it was found on a verge close to the line.

The Beverley to Hull line was shut for four hours following the discovery of the device in Hull on Monday afternoon.

British Transport Police said an Army bomb disposal team dealt with the 2ft long device, which was on land in Woodgate Lane.

Police are trying to find out how it got there.
