Police and a bomb disposal team were called to the site of an unexploded grenade in Yeadon earlier today – but it was confirmed as a toy.
Police cordoned an area of Miner’s Road Waste Sorting site from 11am this morning. A bomb squad later arrived on the scene and confirmed that the grenade was a toy.
A spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said: “At 11.07am today police received a report of an item, that appeared to be a grenade, being found at a waste site in Milner’s Road.
“A cordon was put in place and the Army bomb disposal team attended and checked the item which was found to be a toy.
“The cordon has now been removed.”
This comes shortly after real unexploded smoke and hand grenades were discovered at a flat in Yeadon last month whilst being renovated.
