A World War 2 bomb has been exploded by police in Dagenham.

The Metropolitan Police were called to Chequers Lane yesterday morning after receiving reports about an unexploded ordnance.

Officers found the historic weapon just after 10am.

Sgt Carroll Wheelan told Time 107.5: “Cordons were put in place and a controlled explosion took place.

“The ordnance has now been removed by specialist officers and the cordons have now been removed.”

Earlier this month, Barking and Dagenham police tweeted they had “dealt with” another unexploded bomb in Choats Road.

The Ministry of Defence said it makes safe roughly 60 WW2 bombs every year.
