BOMB disposal experts were called to deal with a number of aging Second World War explosives after they were discovered in Southwick, yesterday (Monday, July 27).
Police were initially called to Southwick Square, at 5pm, where a clearance of a shed had revealed what appeared to be four mortar bombs, possibly of Second World War vintage.
The area was cordoned off to await a military Explosives Ordnance Disposal team who found the bombs still contained explosive material but had been disarmed.
The explosives, believed to have belonged to an ex-military man who died in the 1980s, were safely removed, a police spokesman said.
No one was injured during the operation.
