Wartime incendiary devices found in Trowbridge


Date: 8th February, 2017

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team from the Army is due to detonate a number of wartime incendiary devices which have been found in Trowbridge.

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service was called to a building site in Wingfield Road at 3.59pm this afternoon (8 February) after builders unearthed the glass bottles.

The Army team, which was called in from Tidworth, is expected to carry out a controlled explosion before 8.30pm, and a large amount of smoke will be generated. People living in the immediate area are being warned to stay inside with doors and windows shut, and Wingfield Road remains closed to traffic.

The Fire and Rescue Service has been working alongside colleagues from Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire Police to maintain the safety cordon – two crews from Trowbridge fire station initially attended at the scene, together with a support appliance from Warminster which provided lighting, and one crew from Trowbridge is still on site.
