Phone the Coastguard

An interesting day for the local Coastguard and partner agencies world.

Several incidents today which involved ordnance, the National Trust found a cannon shell placed on top of a bin at Knoll Beach and had to call in the Police and an EOD team to dispose of it.

A concerned member of the public phoned a team member regarding a possible piece of ordnance.

The team member called the National Maritime Operations Centre (NMOC) and reported it straight away which tasked the team to search for the item.

The item has been photographed and will be again assessed at a suitable tide.

If you see something on the beach please contact the Coastguard straight away - the number is simple, 999 ask for Coastguard.
