Controlled Explosion for UXO Found on East Lothian Beach

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was called out after Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) was found on the beach near Gullane in East Lothian. A member of the public had spotted the device, type unknown. The EOD team undertook a controlled explosion.

The section of coastline near Gullane was used for air to ground firing practice during World War Two (WWII) and items periodically wash up along the area’s coastline.
