Authorities from Newham Council say that they plan to wait for people to get clear of the exclusion zone before the police and navy begin to lift the device.

The Royal Navy is taking precautionary steps to ensure that the bomb is "as safe as possible" before they attempt to remove it from the River Thames and tow it away.

London's only central airport, London City, was closed Monday with all flights in and out cancelled, thanks to the discovery of an unexploded World War II bomb nearby.
