A 1st Line Defence UXO Specialist investigated a suspect device found during ground works on a construction site in Gloucestershire this week.

The item was confirmed as a WWII-era anti-aircraft projectile, a cordon was imposed, and the device was appropriately and safely disposed of by a military EOD unit with minimal disruption to site works.

A Detailed UXO Risk Assessment of the site had previously been undertaken by 1st Line Defence, which researched the WWII history of the area – and zoned the site into areas of differing risk based on the historical evidence.
