At approximately half past midnight this morning a loud bang was heard around Swanage.
Jumping out of bed it brought back memories of how the Coastguard team use to be called out. One maroon was fired to summons the Coastguard team or two to summons the lifeboat crew.
So having heard the bang for a split second I thought who is calling the team out but waking up a little more I realised it was impossible as we haven't fired maroons for nearly 10 years.
So it remains a mystery who would be firing something like this ( very different to a fire work). Even the small cloud the maroons made when they had exploded could be seen hanging in the sky.
