Unexploded World War II Bomb Found In River Thames

A World War II bomb has been discovered in the River Thames, causing Waterloo and Westminster bridges to shut.

The roads surrounding the bridges have also been shut, as well as Westminster Underground station, as a precaution while safety checks are carried out.

The device is currently thought to be unexploded and police are unsure how long the checks will take, according to the Daily Star.

The temporary closure of the station and the bridges is causing havoc in the rush hour traffic, so if you're in the area, plan a different route home.
