More Unexploded Ordnance Found at Medmerry Beach

Emergency services were once again summoned to Medmerry Beach near Selsey in West Sussex after recent storms exposed 2No. additional items of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO).

A Royal Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team arrived and carried out controlled explosions on the devices.

This is the latest in a series of UXO finds at the beach, which was used as a bombing and air-to-ground firing range during World War Two.  Coastal erosion and winter storms periodically expose ordnance that has been left in situ for more than 70 years.
