I Pressed The Button

The one thing that David Page probably should not have done when he thought he had uncovered a second world war mine in his yard was to push the button on the end of it.

There was an amusing news story last week about a man who pressed what he thought was a the trigger of a second world war bomb only to discover it was part from the suspension of Citroen car. I read it in a newspaper that was discarded on the underground on my way into work. As it stuck in my brain I have been telling people about it for a good week now and so, in order to share with even more of you, I’ve been off and found a link to the story at The Guardian.
