The Ministry of Defence will be drafted in today to remove old World War Two shells which were found in a garden in Willaston.

Some homes in the area of Watterson Lane were evacuated yesterday after fears over the safety of the objects.

Police remained on scene overnight to oversee a road closure between Fenella Avenue, Watterson Lane and Keppel Road.

They say there is no danger to the public in the area.
