The BBC have confirmed that the weekend launch of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, due to be held at the SSE Arena in Wembley, is expected to go ahead, despite the discovery of an unexploded World War II bomb in the area.

The BBC told Doctor Who News
An unexploded device has been found in Wembley, on a building site close to The SSE Arena.

Police are currently on site and work is underway to make the area safe.

The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular shows planned for Saturday and Sunday are currently unaffected. We will update if there is further news.
The area around the SSE arena is currently closed by the police, with Army bomb disposal experts currently trying to defuse the 50 Kg explosive, thought to have been dropped by German bombers in the early 1940's.

The SSE arena has advised people to follow Brent Borough Metropolitan Police Service for updates.

The concert is due to play three shows at Wembley this weekend, before heading around the UK with dates at Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow.
