The news that there may be a number of unexploded bombs from World War Two on the site where they propose to build the Olympic park reminds me of a story of a local developer.
When the local councillor found out that an area earmarked for a large housing development had been the site of a failed German bombing raid in Wolrd War Two, and that the locals who remember the raid still remember how several of the bombs sank in to the very wet, almost marshy soil, of course the councillor told the council and the developer.
What happened to this information ? It was ignored and now a housing development has been built on the site, and no work was done at all to check for munitions,
I won't divulge where this development is for fear of upsetting the locals, but it isn't in Fakenham and it isn't where I live now either.
