IFFA: Bomb disposal may cause 'considerable disruption'

03 May 2013

Visitors to IFFA, the international trade fair for the meat industry, are being warned that on Sunday morning, a World War II bomb will be defused in the Frankfurt district of Bockenheim. 

According to the organisers, a large area will be cleared and blocked off while this is taking place, which will affect visitors travelling to the event.

In a statement, it was announced: "Diversions to road and rail traffic may result in considerable disruption to journeys to the trade fair site. Visitors to the fair are therefore requested to take account of possible delays when planning their journeys and to follow the instructions of the authorities. The normal running of the trade fair will not be affected."

Up-to-date information will be broadcast on radio and TV and can also be found at
