WWII Bomb Smashes Windows And Cars On London Street

WWII Bomb Smashes Windows And Cars On London Street

Residents on a South London street have been left angry, after a controlled bomb explosion caused damage to cars and windows.

After Scotland Yard and police were called in, the army also turned up to safely detonate the bomb at about 4pm the next day, however the explosion caused windows to smash and damage to cars.

According to posts on social media, the sound of the bomb could be heard up to eight miles away.

The unexploded World War 2 bomb was discovered on a building site on Thursday, leading to local schools and universities being evacuated.

Police recommended at least 1,500 residents should steer clear of the area as they put up a cordon. Many were unable to return home on Thursday night.

At the site, the Army team posed for a picture at the crater left by the blast.

According to clever bomb people, the device is thought to have been a SC250, or Sprengbombe Cylindrisch 250. They were both used by the Luftwaffe during the Blitz, when they dropped 24,000 tons of high explosive on London in 85 major raids.

Police said damage had been limited to a 50-yard radius of the detonation, but according to social media, people were left crying in the streets after damage was caused to expensive cars and windows.

It's unclear if people affected will be compensated.
