Police say an object found on a building site on West Green in Pocklington is a "dudd".
Workmen on the site initially called Minster FM to say a bomb had been found at the site of the new Linden Homes development at 10.22am.
Road closures were put in place at the junction of West Green and Canal Lane and at the junction of West Green with Beck View, but these along with a police cordon have now been lifted.
Police and explosives experts spent several hours at the site examining the empty shell and the bomb disposal team have taken it away with them.
