A man showing his family around his new home in Wales came across a WWII bomb in a cupboard.

24-year-old Henry Southall had been giving his parents a tour of the property at Porthmadog when they came upon the unexploded device in the kitchen. Bomb disposal experts were soon on the scene and took it to a deserted beach nearby where it was discharged in an explosion that left a large crater in the sand and that could be heard two miles away.

"I'm glad I found it when I did," said Southall. "I wouldn't have wanted it going off while I was in bed upstairs." The bomb disposal team told him that the device had contained 16lbs of explosives.
