While the investigation was conducted residents in the neighbourhood were ordered to leave their homes as a precaution.

A Thames Valley Police spokesperson said: “TVP extends thanks to all local residents who vacated their properties at our request - you are welcome to return home when you are ready.”

This is the second incident this week which has required an intervention from the EOD in Aylesbury.

On Monday evening (25 July) a Second World War ordinance was discovered in Bedgrove Park.

Citizens were advised to avoid the area, while the historic weapon was made safe.

Officers carried out a controlled explosion in the park to deactivate it on Monday evening.

The old weapon had been discovered in a home on Ingram Avenue earlier that afternoon.
