3-Inch Shell Found at The Fleet in Wyke Regis

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was called to deal with a 3-inch shell at The Fleet near Wyke Regis after its discovery by the Coastguard.  Comprising a lagoon between the mainland and Chesil Beach, The Fleet area was long used by the military for bombing and firing practice.

The EOD team x-rayed the shell and declared it inert, allowing its removal without the need for a controlled explosion.
