Explosive end to gelignite find

Police bomb response officers have detonated sticks of unstable gelignite almost 24 hours after the dangerous explosives were discovered at a Kalgoorlie property.

Residents in the suburb of Somerville were evacuated from their homes and streets were closed after the explosives were found in a garden shed at 4.20pm yesterday.

A specialist bomb robot was used to move 26 gelignite sticks to a containment pit where they were detonated at about 3.30pm today.
