A man showing his family around his new home in Gwynedd found an unexploded bomb in his kitchen cupboard.

Henry Southall, 24, and his parents were exploring the seaside property at Porthmadog when they discovered the device from World War II.

He says an Army bomb disposal team told him it contained 16lbs of explosives.
