Unexploded World War Two bomb discovered at Tuddenham farm.

A Tuddenham farmer had to call in bomb disposal experts after an unexploded device was dug up on his land - by pigs.

The World War Two shell was found alongside a rifle bullet hidden among the group of animals at Saint Anton Farm in Higham Road.

Bomb disposal teams safely removed the bomb, which measured one foot in length and six inches in diameter, at just after 3.30pm on Monday.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: “We received a call at 1.35pm yesterday from someone saying they believed they had discovered a Second World War shell in a field.

“They suspected it was unexploded. Police attended and the bomb disposal team was called at 3.30pm.

“The bomb and the rifle bullet were safely taken away.”
