Norfolk man disarms mine with finger

And then the bomb squad arrives and tells him it's a hydraulic tractor part. Whoops. Bet he felt dumb

news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

Mr Page told BBC News Online: "When I pressed the button, I thought, what have I done - this could be an explosive device.

The item is thought to be a car or tractor part

"I thought, with a mine, normally if you lift your foot up, it would trigger."

After Mr Page, a father of five, showed his wife Joanne his predicament she advised him to go outdoors, where he later plunged his hand into a container of sand.

Mrs Page stayed with him throughout the ordeal and kept him warm with a hot water bottle and blankets until the object was found to be safe.
