'shell' ?

Wonder what all the panic is about. Looks like a solid shot, no explosive.

I am so lucky. I barely escaped this terrible disaster, as I live in NL . . .

I am in the cellar waiting for the all clear as I am a scant 20 miles away.

Pray for me.

Really? What do you suggest, based solely on the picture? Pick it up?
"A military bomb disposal unit also attended the scene.

GMP said officers had left the scene by 14:30 and the device was removed."

You ex colleagues are obviously happy with it in the back of the van.

Well they put it to the Dingerr method of booting it soundly, leave it ten seconds and if you have all your bits still attached it's obviously a dud.

I expect they did a bit more than look at an online photo of it though.

In my technical opinion, you should stay there for the next 30 years, just to be on the safe side.

They’ve attended, seen it eyes on and have other methods such as radiography to determine what it is and whether it’s safe to move, this is only done after extensive training and validation.

The advocates of ‘its nothing’ really are stupid.

I've just got home from Scumchester. Shame it wasn't a 20Kt jobby that did go off pop.
