A suspected World War Two ordnance was found on a building site in Herne Hill this morning.
Police from Lambeth MPS said the unexploded ordnance – a catch-all term for weapons such as bombs, shells, grenades and landmines – was discovered by construction workers on Dylan Road shortly before 9am.
The surrounding area, including Milkwood Road, was cordoned off until the device was made safe.
Roads have now reopened.
