Unexploded Shell Found on the Beach at Warsash

An unexploded shell that washed up on the beach at Warsash near Southampton has been destroyed in a controlled explosion by an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team.

The shell, thought to date to WWII or the 1950s, was found by a member of the public on the shoreline, leading to the area being closed off by the Coastguard.

The EOD team arrived and destroyed the device in situ.
