9-Inch Shell Found at Business Park Near Plymouth

A suspected 9-inch shell was found at Derriford Business Park near Plymouth.  Police evacuated nearby buildings and put a 200m safety cordon in place whilst an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team made the short trip from HM Naval Base Devonport.

The EOD team declared the device safe and removed it shortly afterwards.

It’s not the first recent visit the Royal Navy EOD team has made to the Derriford area, after 24No. Self-Igniting Phosphorus (SIP) grenades were found off Tavistock Road in January.
