A LANE of the M40 motorway was closed off by police yesterday amid
reports that liquid explosives were found by teenagers at the
roadside. Two 13-year-olds cycling through Fennell's Wood,
Loudwater, on Wednesday night discovered two bin liners, which they
say contained bottles of liquid. The youngsters tipped out the
bags' contents which then smoked and bubbled on the ground. The
terrified teenagers fled from the wood and dialled 999. They were
being interviewed by anti-terror police at a secret location in
South Bucks yesterday. Police told one of the boys' mothers that
what they discovered was an important find'. The mother, from
Hatters Lane, High Wycombe, added: "We didn't know what it was, but
the police have said that it is bomb-making equipment." The
discovery was close to Loudwater Combined School. Officers from the
Metropolitan Police descended on the stretch of motorway between
junctions three and four. Teams of explosives officers were called
to the scene a month after the anti-terror raids shook the town.
The slow lane of the eastbound carriageway between junctions three
and four was coned off and reduced to two lanes as a precautionary
measure. Forensic teams continued the investigation on Thursday
morning, while the lane closure between Handy Cross and Loudwater
caused severe tailbacks during rush hour. Thames Valley Police
officers stood guard at the scene of the roped-off area of
Fennell's Wood. The Metropolitan Police however would not confirm
or deny that liquid explosives had been found. A spokeswoman, who
would not be named, added: "We are not prepared to discuss what the
items are and we are not prepared to speculate whether the items
are linked to any ongoing investigations. "
