A HAND grenade has been found in a sack of potatoes bought at a greengrocers.

The unexploded device, dating from the Second World War, had gone undetected for so long due to its ‘petrified’ state, giving it the appearance of a potato.

Bomb disposal experts disposed of the live explosive following its discovery at a shop in Chiclana de la Frontera.

The device is believed to have made its way undetected across Europe from Belgium.

The incident follows an almost identical find in Oviedo in 2007.
