What's in your garden shed?

As we all know the average shed tend to be used for storing all sorts of garden equipment from lawnmowers and tools to barbeques and garden furniture. It was recently reported that a shed owner in Oxfordshire  kept a World War Two mortar shell in their garden shed for more than a decade believing it to be deactivated.

Luckily before demolishing the shed, they checked with police who found it to be live. The shell was safely detonated by army bomb disposal experts.

“Thames Valley Police described it as a "historic live munition" and told residents in a tweet there was "no need to worry". “
