A worker on Wednesday found a wartime bomb at a construction site in Hong Kong's Wan Chai, the second of the same model as the one found on Saturday.

Police received a report at around 11:15 a.m. BJT and deployed a bomb disposal team to the site at the junction of Convention Avenue and Tonnochy Road.

Nearby areas have been cordoned off and disposal officers have been at the scene to examine the situation.

Last weekend, Hong Kong police carried out a disposal operation after a 450kg unexploded wartime bomb was unearthed at the same site.
