    This is near Orleans. Think I'm right in saying the railway station was destroyed in an RAF raid in 1944.
    You'll need Google translate-
    "An English bomb weighing around 250 kilos and dating from the Second World War was discovered this Thursday afternoon on the site of the new Interives district in Fleury-les-Aubrais.
    The Loiret prefecture indicates that a security perimeter of around 500 meters has been set up by the police, who are securing the site while awaiting the arrival of the Versailles demining service, scheduled for around 6 p.m.
    This scope may change according to the directives of these explosive device specialists. According to our information, the bomb was not damaged or moved by the workers who unearthed it."
