An explosion caused by the military exploding a World War Two bomb in Pickering was heard around two miles away.

A member of the public called police at 2.40pm yesterday, reporting that they'd found a possible bomb at Pickering Showground.

Military bomb disposal experts advised police to put up a 200m police cordon around the area.

The World War II mortar was safely detonated by the bomb disposal experts, just after 9am this morning.

Judith Chestnutt was working nearby at the Steam & Moorland Garden and Machinery Centre when it went off:
