An unexploded German bomb from WWII has been uncovered at a building site in Southampton, England.

Hampshire police said the 45kg (100lb) device was found by construction workers in London Road at 1005 GMT.

A 200m (220yd) area was cordoned off and buildings evacuated.

Some people are now being allowed back in but the device is still being inspected by a team from the Royal Engineers who hope to move it soon.

Office workers and other people were being allowed back into the cordoned off area if they had a legitimate reason to go back.
