A police cordon that was put in place after a number of suspected bombs were discovered in Bury St Edmunds has been lifted.
Police were called to reports that a number of suspected bombs discovered in Dettingen Way at 7.30am on Wednesday.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said the bombs are believed to be mortar explosives that were found on the building site.
A 100m cordon was put in place, encompassing part of the industrial estate and involving the evacuation of some buildings in the zone.
The public footpath at the Westley Road end was also closed.
A spokesman for Suffolk police has since said: "An exclusion area that had been put in place in Bury St Edmunds has now been lifted.
"An army bomb disposal team attended and examined the items, deeming them safe to remove and as such they have taken them away.
