Parts of Soho have been closed off for a second time in 24 hours, following a further discovery of an unexploded World War Two bomb. 


Scotland Yard confirmed on Twitter "another part of yesterday’s WW2 ordnance [has] been discovered".  The bomb was uncovered during building work on Monday, which has led to the evacuation of buildings in Soho.


Soho police confirmed road closures on twitter as: “Dean St j/w Old Compton St, Dean St j/w Carlisle Place, Dean St j/w Bateman St, Bateman St j/w Frith St, Meard St j/w Wardour St, St Annes Court j/w Wardour St.”

The discovery today comes after the Ministry of Defence (MoD) dispatched an Army explosive ordnance disposal team on Monday, they confirmed the bomb had been “safe to remove overnight to a location where it [would] be detonated."
