The Kentish Town road was placed on lockdown while police investigated the object shortly after 8.10am.

Bartholomew Road was closed off as officers swooped on the scene. 

Witnesses described as many as six police cars arriving in the street. 

Ella Wilks-Harper, 23, a resident on the road, said: “As I was leaving my house to work at 8.30am a police officer rushed up to me and told me to evacuate my house.

“One end of Bartholomew Road was cordoned off. Other members of the police were ringing bells to try and get people out.”

The police cordon has since been removed from the road.

A Met Police spokeswoman said: “We were called at 8.10am to an address in Bartholomew Road to reports of a World War Two ordnance.

“It has since been stood down.”

The spokeswoman added that the Met’s bomb specialists confirmed the finding was an unexploded bomb.
