Gas canister mistaken for unexploded war bomb in Bromley North

PUBLISHED: 17:15 02 July 2013

Roads were closed and the train station was evacuated in Bromley North after workmen discovered what they thought was an unexploded Second World War bomb - but it turned out to just be a gas canister.

There was a 400m cordon placed around the Tweedy Road area at 3.42pm, which also affected London Road, College Road and Widmore Road.

The station and roads reopened just over an hour later but Bromley police warned drivers to expect slow traffic as the roads get back to normal.
