Bomb disposal experts on the scene

BOMB disposal experts are on the scene at a street in Penistone following the discovery of what are believed to be unexploded Second World War munitions.


Sheffield Road is closed between Queen Street and Green Road and a cordon is in place as two bomb disposal lorries joined police on the scene earlier this afternoon (Wednesday).


The road is expected to remain closed for some time - motorists are advised to avoid the area and some residents and businesses have been evacuated as a precaution.
