The team returned to north of Sheps Hollow today after a member of the public reported a possible mine on the beach.

A EOD team ( bomb disposal ) arrived and after a few minutes discovered an old pulley wheel and chain - maybe an old mooring ?

It was a good call from the member of the public - items should never be touched, just call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

Yesterday in Studland someone found a WW2 cannon shell and placed it on a dust bin, the National Trust called the Police who called the EOD team to dispose of the item. These items are still very dangerous after 70 years and should never be handled.
