A boy who received a metal detector for Christmas has found a WWII bomb buried in a field in England.

Sonny Cater was exploring fields near his house when the National Geographic metal detector, worth £30, led him to a mud-caked metal capsule.

He took it home but his father Jem, 37, became suspicious as he washed it under a tap and contacted a relative who is a former RAF armourer.

The family were told to immediately call the police and a bomb disposal squad was dispatched to their home in Kings Lynn, Norfolk.
