Unexploded Ordnance Found on Beach at Hornsea

More Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) has been found on the beach near Hornsea, resulting in a controlled explosion being undertaken by a Royal Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team.

It is unclear how many items were found, but it is thought that at least 1No. practice bomb was discovered. Large sections of the Holderness coastline were used for bombing and firing practice during and after WWII and such finds are common.

The latest discovery follows similar finds along the coast in April and May this year. In many instances, devices are washed up on the beach during storms, or dislodged from the cliff face due to coastal erosion.
