Bomb found on nearby beach

Northerly winds have caused a Second World War bomb to be washed onto Chapel St. Leonard’s beach. Police and coastguards implemented a 300 yard restricted area around the unexploded bomb as a bomb disposal team were called in from Nottingham to defuse the bomb.

The bomb had been uncovered by a member of the public at around lunchtime on August 9th. Mark Smith, coastguard station manager commented that “The beach was busy. There was a lot of people to cordon off.” Officials have made clear that the safety of the public is of the highest importance. Should anyone discover anything like this, they are advised to leave it alone, not pick it up and contact the emergency services.
