“WW2 bomb” found in garden is just a rock

Hundreds of people were told to leave their homes because a rock found in a garden in Esher was believed to be a WW2 bomb.

Bomb disposal experts turned up on site, creating a 200m exclusion zone.

“The Kingston Bypass in Hinchley Wood, Esher has been re-opened following the assessment of a piece of suspected WW2 ordnance,” says Surrey Police.

“The A309 Kingston Bypass and other surrounding roads were closed at 10.24am this morning after an item was found in a garden believed to be unexploded ordnance.

“Explosive Ordnance Disposal officers were called to the scene and it has now been found to be a rock.”
