A hundred metre cordon is in place at West Green in Pocklington as builders on a construction site have found what's believed to be part of a World War Two bomber plane.

West Green has been closed and a cordon of 100 metres put up around the site to protect the public and is in place until further notice..

Explosives experts are examining the item and police say the item will be made safe as soon as possible.

Humberside Police are advising people to avoid the area until the item has been made safe or removed.

Exactly a week ago, a previous item which caused a bomb scare was found to be an empty World War Two shell.

Minster FM listener Darryl is by the cordon and spoke to Minster FM just before 6pm.
