AN UNEXPLODED wartime bomb at a Dartford construction site has been found to be a dud nearly a day after it was first reported. 

The device had been keeping police and bomb disposal experts busy since officers were called at 3.45pm yesterday afternoon to the site in the A225 Hawley Road.

A small area near the Questor Industrial Estate was sealed off and members of the public warned to stay away from the area while checks were carried out. 

Butterly Avenue was closed off as specialist teams investigated whether the explosive device is live or not. 

It has been found to be empty and will now be removed from the site by the RAF.
