POLICE tonight issued the all-clear after the discovery of a suspected WW2 bomb near retail units at Martlesham Heath.
The rusty pipe-like object was unearthed by surveyors in Gloster Road and the area was sealed off by police at 5.50pm.
However, bomb disposal experts were called to the scene and were unable to determine if the suspect pipe was a bomb - but reassured the public the area was safe.
Suffolk Police said its position under a concrete car park meant it could be excavated at a later date.
A spokesman added that it would not cause any problem in the mean time.
The cordon was lifted after two hours.
