Bomb disposal teams kept busy in Cornwall
BOMB disposal experts are being kept busy on the Cornish coastline as unexplained objects are exposed by storms.
A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: “People are finding metal on the beaches and thinking the worst, but we wouldn’t discourage people from reporting things they do find.”
An 18-inch-long metal cylinder encased in another damaged cylinder was levered up from Tolcarne beach at Newlyn and disposed of by a bomb disposal team.
Peter Wallace, from Newlyn, who found it, said: “I didn’t know what it was and first wondered if it was a fire extinguisher but I thought I’d better tell the police. A police officer came to look at it and the bomb disposal team came on Thursday.”
