Police cordoned off a road after reports an unexploded World War Two bomb had been found in a back garden. 

Residents of Craigen Avenue in Addiscombe were told they could face evacuation after the supposed discovery this morning.

But closer inspection revealed a rather less explosive find - part of a dustbin. 

Police have now reopened the road.
