At least 23,000 people were evacuated from a town in Italy after a World War II bomb was spotted at a construction site, the media reported.
The town has population of just over 60,000, according to the national statistics institute.
The device was manufactured in the UK. If it goes off, the bomb could cause damage within a radius of 1,800 metres, according to ANSA.
A hospital and the railway station were also evacuated and train service was halted because they lay within the bomb's 1,800-metre range.
Military explosives specialists will extract it and set it off at sea, ANSA reported.
