Fifth UXO Call-Out at Former Shrewsbury Barracks Site

Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) personnel were called out to the former Copthorne Barracks site in Shrewsbury for the fifth time after another suspected Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) discovery.

Now a housing development, UXO has been found periodically at the site in the past few months. A 100m security cordon was put in place by Police prior to the EOD team’s attendance.

Mortars are reported to have been found at the site previously.
