The bomb that was dropped by the Royal Air force measured 1.2 metres in length. The location of the find, Izegem, is pretty unusual. A controlled explosion was needed because there were fears the device could explode in the garden.
DOVO's Carla Berens: "The bomb was equipped with a delaying device that means that it could have exploded when people were trying to defuse it. The bomb's explosion could be delayed between 6 and 144 hours. The bomb had been moved. That is why we had to take quick action."
