An RAF disposal of explosives team had to be called in when a tractor drive came across old wartime munitions on land in Holbeach on Thursday.

Police closed off Hither Old Gate, between Fen Road and Cranmore Lane while a team from RAF Wittering dealt with the find just before 4pm.

The drama took place on land close to a car dealership and motorbike showroom close to the Holbeach/Holbeach Fen border.
