A police cordon has been set up around a street where a potentially explosive device has been found.

Police were called to Back Hill in Ely this afternoon after what is thought to be a hand grenade was discovered.

The military have been called to remove the device and residents are advised by officers to avoid the area or stay in doors.

The device has been sandbagged by police with the help of local brick merchants Jewsons.
