A former Dundee woman has spoken of her shock after a workman discovered a grenade in her loft.
Police cordoned off an area of Monifieth after an “ordnance device” was discovered in Airlie Drive shortly after 3pm today.
Homes in the street and some on neighbouring Grangehill Drive were evacuated as a precaution.
A bomb disposal squad was also called out to the home of Noreen Jordan. It is currently travelling up from Edinburgh.
The 56-year-old said she only moved into her new house today after leaving Broughty Ferry.
Noreen said: “The house has been getting renovated and the joiners were in.
“I was sitting in my lovely new kitchen when the joiner appeared with a grenade in his hand. He had found it in the attic.
“We were both a bit shocked and thought we had better phone the police.
“It looks to me like the pin is still in.
“We’re just waiting for the bomb squad to arrive.
“What a start to our move. ”
A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “We are responding to reports of an ordnance device being found within a residential property in the Airlie Drive area of Monifieth, Dundee today at around 3:05pm.
“Part of Airlie Drive and part of Grangehill Drive are closed while we deal with the matter but diversions along other sections of the road are available.”
