BBC News - Surface-to-air missile taken to Wednesbury police
A surface-to-air missile was taken to a police station, causing chaos in a Black Country town centre.
A 400m cordon was put in place in Wednesbury after a man drove it to the police station. He had collected the missile from a house clearance.
Nearby businesses were evacuated and junction nine of the M6 was closed. The Metro service was also suspended and the bus station shut.
The device was later classified as an inert surface-to-air missile.
It was taken away by a bomb disposal team after it was reported to police at about 1540 GMT.
It appears to have been an army surplus or trophy of war type thing that had been previously made safe."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.
