    St Athan bomb: People told to stay indoors after explosive found
    ''People were told to stay indoors and rail services were suspended after the discovery of a bomb in a village.

    The explosive was found in Llantwit Road in St Athan, Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales Police has confirmed.

    The force said it was "dealing with ordnance" after officers were called at about 10:00 GMT.

    "Specialist officers have been deployed to deal with the item and make it safe. Residents are [also] advised to stay away from windows," a spokesman said.

    British Transport Police and Network Rail were also called in when the device was found next to the Rhoose-to-Llantwit Major line.''

    Oh my! I was thinking something from WWII or along those lines.

    Hang on, these are two separate incidents. The original post refers to a bomb in the Vale of Glamorgan (in Wales, near Cardiff), the other is an incident in Glasgow.

    Thanks for spotting that, posted too quickly!
    Does this mean there was a bomb scare in both countries on the same day?
    speculation.

    It sounds like the St Athan's bomb was not a bomb threat. It didn't get mentioned at all in Wales Online, the other news site.
