Watford Community Housing Trust investigates Abbots Langley bomb rumours
The Watford Community Housing Trust is currently looking into rumours of unexploded bombs underneath a green space in Abbots Langley.
In January, the housing trust awarded the Hillside Residents Association with a £60,000 grant to improve their community space.
However rumours by residents about unexploded bombs underneath the site, thought to have circulated in a pub, has meant the housing trust will now carry out safety checks before Groundwork develop the site.
Joe Dumont, spokesperson from the trust said: "As far as we are aware this is a completely unsubstantiated rumour, based on something that one person said to another once in a pub.
"We have followed it up with the local historical society and there are no records of any unexploded ordinance in this area.
"However, we will as a matter of course ensure that all the necessary safety checks are carried out before work starts on site."
