Bomb disposal experts in Frankfurt, Germany, have successfully defused a massive unexploded bomb from World War Two.

About 65,000 people were evacuated in Frankfurt to enable experts to make the bomb safe. Many residents are now awaiting permission to return to their homes.

The evacuation on Sunday morning was the biggest in post-war German history, involving hundreds of officials.
Police checked every designated house with heat-detection technology to make sure everyone was out.

The 1.4 tonne British bomb was found on a building site on Wednesday.

There are believed to be hundreds of thousands of unexploded wartime bombs across Germany.
