Americans bomb Kiteman: miss by sixty years.

A Royal Navy bomb disposal unit has been called to an unexploded bomb discovered on a Suffolk beach.

Experts in the unit think the bomb was dropped by a US aircraft in World War II, while returning to an airbase.

Houses and schools within half a mile of the site at Felixstowe harbour have been evacuated while the unit works on the device.

As I type, a bomb-disposal expert has been on the TV to say it may be a 500-pounder.

EDIT: It's a German bomb, not American. You can tell your lawyers to relax.

Oh, miles and miles - it just seemed to be a funny title.

They have been attempting to float it out to sea, and have also decided that it's German, not American, so you're all off the hook.
