An Army bomb disposal team was called in when a worker repairing gas mains discovered a First World War bomb.
Roads in Rainham were closed for almost three hours yesterday.
The man, who was working on Wimbourne Drive, found a metal cylinder at 1.30pm yesterday and called the police.
Police closed the surrounding roads and Army bomb disposal officers arrived and detonated the device, which was later identified as a 15lb shrapnel shell.
The roads were opened again at 4.10pm.
