Egg hunt bomb­shell

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A MUM yes­ter­day told of the heart-stop­ping mo­ment her three-year-old boy trod on a live HAND GRE­NADE – dur­ing an Easter egg hunt.

Abi Sidaway, 31, no­ticed son Ben stand­ing on a raised ob­ject and tried to pick it up think­ing it was an Easter egg.

But she quickly re­alised what it was and an Army bomb squad was called to blow up the rusty gre­nade – thought to have been there since World War II.

The eggs-plo­sive in­ci­dent hap­pened as Abi took Ben and daugh­ter El­lie, five, to a choco­late hunt in wood­land at Hol­ford, Som­er­set.

Abi, of Nether Stowey, Som­er­set, said: “I no­ticed this brown ob­ject and started play­ing with it with my feet.

“It looked like an Easter egg and was shaped ex­actly like one but I knew that it was def­i­nitely not be­cause of the sheer weight of it. It was such a shock to find it was a gre­nade – I still can’t be­lieve how lucky we all are.”
