Mortar Find Closes Argyll Garden Centre

A garden centre in Argyll & Bute was closed after the discovery of a mortar in its grounds. The mortar was found in a shallow hole being dug as part of the foundations for a new shed at the property in Kinlochlaich.

Along with the mortar were discovered a tin helmet, bottles and other WWII-era artefacts.

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was mobilised to assess the device and make safe if required.
