............... the moment that he had been dreading had arrived. He cautiously glanced over his shoulder at his colleague across the room. "It's a device Colin!"
Colin nodded his agreement....the visible beads of sweat beginning to trickle down his temple.
With nimble fingers the bomb disposal expert began to remove the fragile looking object out of its muddy sacking. It was colder to the touch than he'd expected. Such an innocuous looking object he thought, but he knew that this canister, if not handled correctly, had the potential to level half the district.
Somewhere in the corridor outside Topper heard a pin drop.........

............is this what you had in mind SBD?

Opposite St. Mary's Stadium, (gulp!)
The device didn't have a blue and white scarf wrapped around it, did it?
