Unexploded Olympic Bomb Opposite Leabank Square
About an hour ago - all the Olympic site construction workers suddenly dropped everything & legged it away from our shared canal!!
A few minutes afterwards - the police arrived here in Leabank Square and ordered us all away from the windows overlooking the Olympic site.
All the fuss?
An unexploded bomb along the fence here at Leabank Square.
It is in exactly the spot that we planted the fig tree about 10 years ago!!!
After all the hoopla about building the electric fence all around the Olympic Park - there was a bomb about a meter inside the perimeter fence all along.
This is the same fence that all the bull dozers, massive trucks, huge diggers - not forgetting all the Leabankers who planted our much missed & always loved orchard!
Anyhow - it might take a while before they sort it out - so sit tight Leabank Square - and if you hear a bang - check the canal for any leaks!!
