A GRANDAD found a World War Two air raid shelter buried under his lawn.
Steps to the bunker were hidden under a manhole cover.
Khandu Patel, 68, made the discovery while gardening at his 1920s semi.
School caretaker Mr Patel, who has lived in the Wolverhampton property with wife Usha, 62, for 40 years, said: “I’d always wondered why the manhole cover was there.
“During lockdown me and a friend decided to lift it up. Under it was concrete.
“We started digging and it became apparent it was a staircase. It was amazing seeing all the steps exposed.”

With the help of pals, Mr Patel dug the 10ft down to the 5ft by 10ft shelter.
He said: “We reckon most of the street would have used it during the war. It could probably have got 40 people inside cramped.
“We’re turning it into a bar. It’s going to be where we can relax and when allowed, have family over.”
