A 35-year-old man arrested on suspicion of theft has been bailed after wartime bombs were found in a home.

The arrest relates to First World War and Second World War artefacts and munitions found at a home in Buckingham Crescent, Bicester, yesterday.

Forensic investigation continues at the scene today and some of the bombs have been safely detonated.

The man, from Bicester, was arrested yesterday morning and has been bailed until November 11.

It came after a number of warrants were executed in St Albans, Hertfordshire on Wednesday, to target the theft of heritage artefacts and munitions.
