A specialist bomb disposal team were called to an industrial premises to deal with an old World War II weapon in Ravensthorpe.
A police spokesman said the Royal Logistic Corps were called to the premises on Low Mill Road last weekend.
He said: “The occupants of the premises had an old weapon which sounds like some kind of old bomb, brought back by a relative, which they thought had been decomissioned.
“But it was thought it might not be and so photographs of it were sent to the bomb disposal team, which made sure it was safe.”
