`Bomb’ of a car has Norfolk man worried

`A Norfolk man spent four hours holding a rusty piece of metal he feared was an unexploded World War Two bomb that would detonate if he let go — only to be told he had been cradling part of an old car. [..]

Page, a father of five, sobbed to the woman operator:

“I told her to tell my parents and the children that I loved them if anything went wrong.”

The drama ended when army bomb disposal experts turned up and told him the “bomb” was actually part of the hydraulic suspension system from a Citroen.’
