Up to 50,000 people could be evacuated from Hanover after several unexploded World War II bombs were found in the German city.

Explosives experts are investigating the area around the Vahrenwald in the north of the city to assess how many bombs could be buried there, Thomas Bleicher from the unexploded ordnance authority told The Local.

It could result in one of the largest evacuations in post-war history.
