A cordon remains in place in Southampton after an unexploded German World War II bomb was found at a building site.

Hampshire police said the 45kg (100lb) device was found by construction workers in London Road at 1005 GMT.

A 200m (220yd) area was cordoned off and buildings evacuated.

Some people are now being allowed back in but the device is still being inspected by a team from the Royal Engineers who hope to move it soon.
