The bomb disposal squad has been called out in Sussex several times in recent years, usually to deal with unexploded shells from wartime

Hailsham bomb 'hoax' and 12 other times the bomb disposal squad was called out in Sussex

A suspected bomb hoax at an industrial estate, a 1,000kg WW2 sea mine and a cache of 80 grenades are just some of the reasons that bomb disposal units have been called out to Sussex in recent years
