Hand grenade found in Easter egg hunt
An Easter egg hunt in Somerset came to a dramatic end when children searching for chocolate found a live grenade.
Organisers spotted a child standing on the device as eggs were being counted, reports the Daily Mail.
Children were moved away and an army bomb disposal team called in to destroy the grenade in a controlled explosion.
The grenade, believed to be a relic from the Second World War, was found in a field next to a busy road.
The egg-shaped hand grenade was spotted by father-of-three Stuart Moffatt, 34, at the event organised by a pre-school group.
Mr Moffatt said: "We were beginning to count up the eggs at the end of the hunt and I saw a boy of three standing on an object.
"It was brown and about 4 inches high. It looked like an Easter egg, but it was a hand grenade.
"I was shocked. The boy who was standing on it thought it was a rock."
About 25 children, aged between two and five, had been at the hunt near woodland at Holford.
