The artillery shell was discovered at a building site earlier on Thursday.

The Army Bomb Disposal Team arrived on scene at 11.10am and the site was evacuated.

A cordon was also put in place for the duration of the operation. The scene was declared safe at 12.00pm.

The historic device has now been removed to a secure military installation for further examination.
