Unexploded WW2 bomb found close to the Elizabeth Bridge in the River Danube

The bomb, believed to be a 100kg Soviet-made detonation device, was discovered buried in the river bed on Monday

Plans to remove an unexploded WW2 bomb positioned close to the Elizabeth Bridge in the River Danube have been postponed to a later date.

The bomb, believed to be a 100kg Soviet-made detonation device, was discovered buried in the river bed on Monday.

An armed forces’ official said that the planned removal will take place at a later date, after officials made a call to delay the removal on Tuesday.

Explosives experts are set to formally identify the device today and decide upon the method of removal afterwards.

Zita Markovics said the public will be informed about any traffic restrictions, and evacuations if need be, well in advance.
