A suspected British-made wartime bomb has been uncovered near Lei Yue Mun Park and Holiday village today.

Officers defused the bomb -- 12 inches in length and 3 inches in diameter, at 3 pm after a three-hour effort. 

No evacuation was required and no injuries were reported throughout the incident.
