About 60 people have been evacuated from the area surrounding a construction site on a Danish island where a possible Second World War bomb has been found.

Police said the device was found on the island of Roemoe, which is popular with German tourists in the summer months. Residents and tourists in the area have been offered shelter in a school.

The island, which has a permanent population of about 650, sits off the west coast of the Jutland peninsula.
