Magnet fishing once more proved that is a potentially explosive hobby after a man pulled a wartime incendiary shell from the River Medway in Maidstone. The latest in a slew of similar incidents, the discovery of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) is becoming a genuine hazard to this intriguing pastime.

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team assessed Police photos of the device, identified it as an incendiary, and came to remove it from the scene.
