Residents heard loud bang as small home-made device went off but no one was injured and minimal damage was caused

Police confirmed on Sunday that a suspicious object found near a mosque in Walsall was a small home-made explosive device.

A loud bang heard by residents in the Caldmore area of Walsall late on Friday “appeared to be consistent” with the device exploding, according to West Midlands Police.

No one was injured and minimal damage was caused around the device, which was found by a member of the public in an alleyway adjoining the Aisha Mosque and Islamic Centre.

Almost 40 homes near the scene were evacuated as a “precautionary and temporary” after bomb disposal experts were called to the mosque.
