Greenkeepers at Cilsanws Golf Club in Wales found an inactive World War Two bomb, after being alerted by a member of the public.

The workers found the device on the Merthyr Tydfil golf course last week.

An army bomb disposal team dispatched to the scene to handle the bomb, but found it was inactive and posed no threat to the public.

They removed the device from the course.

It is thought the device was a Spigot mortar – an infantry anti-tank weapon.

Two police vehicles left the site after it was discovered there was no danger on the course.

“There will be no new dips in the golf course from the device or anything like that,” a police spokesman said.
