BOMB disposal experts have been called to a house following the discovery of a man's body and a haul of Second World War weapons and ammunition.

Avon and Somerset Police alerted the Army's Explosive Ordnance Disposal team after being called to the property in Wellsway, Keynsham, on Friday.

As a precaution, a small cordon was put in place and some homes were evacuated but it has since been lifted and neighbours have returned to their properties.

A police spokesman said: "We were called to a property in Wellsway in Keynsham to reports that a body of a man has been found.

"It is being treated as a sudden death and will be referred to the coroner.

"It appears ornamental weapons and ammunition have been found. As a precaution we put a small cordon in place.

"The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team said the cordon was not necessary and people have returned to their homes."
