Grenade alert at castle.

A suspected World War II bomb found in a Valleys town has turned out to be a dud hand grenade. The potentially explosive find was discovered around lunchtime yesterday by men working to clear the moat around Caerphilly Castle.

Offices and schools in the area were contacted and asked to keep their pupils indoors while bomb disposal experts examined the device.

A Gwent Police spokeswoman said: 'We immediately took these precautionary measures and Crescent Road was closed to motorists.'

But the experts soon identified the object as a dud.
