Smoke Mortar Found on Mundesley Beach in Norfolk

A controlled explosion was carried out on the beach at Mundesley, Norfolk after the discovery of a suspected 2-inch smoke mortar.  It is unclear whether the mortar had been washed up or simply exposed through sand movement.

After the Coastguard put in place a security cordon around the device, an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team arrived and destroyed it in situ.
