A ferry terminal in Jersey had to be cordoned off while a live World War Two hand grenade was recovered from the boot of a car.
The owner of the car had found the Mills hand grenade in her home, where it had been for decades.
She had been taking it to a police station but called the States of Jersey police who directed her to the harbour, where a bomb disposal officer recovered it.
This morning police along with the Bomb Disposal Officer attended at the QE2 Ferry Terminal to recover a WW2 Mills Hand Grenade from a car boot.
