WWII German Bomber parts found in English garden

Engine parts from a German bomber shot down during the Battle of Britain have been found in an garden in Somerset, England.

Engine parts of the Heinkel were left 5ft (1.5m) underground in Puriton for over 70 years archaeologists have said.

Homeowner Alan Jennings said: “It’s not everyday you get someone knock on the door and say there’s a German bomber in your back garden.”

The site is being excavated after original photographs were used to discover the plane’s exact whereabouts.
