Man arrested over fireworks stash

A 25-year-old man has been arrested under the Explosives Act after a large stash of fireworks were found at a flat in a Birmingham suburb.

Homes on Swan Gardens in Erdington were evacuated during the evening while an army bomb disposal team was brought in.

Local roads and the cross-city railway line were shut while the area was made safe.

Earlier, bomb disposal officers were called to a flat in Plymouth after the discovery of "firework-like devices".

In that incident police said Royal Navy bomb experts were called out as a precautionary measure to ensure the devices were safe and several people were arrested. Click here for the original article.
