WWII Shell Washed Up on Beach, England. (2 May 2011)

only a week since this http://www.documentingreality.com/fo...-2011-a-77159/

A bomb disposal team have detonated a World War II shell near Holy Island.

A member of the public saw the shell at Goswick Sands on Sunday evening and alerted Berwick coastguard.

It was identified as an unexploded shell and a controlled explosion was carried out by the Faslane bomb disposal team at 0800 BST.

Humber Coastguard warned people to beware of unexploded WWII ordnance that may be washed up on the North East coast.

Drew Mahood, watch manger at Humber Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre, said: "If you find an object on the beach which you are not sure about, do not touch it.

"Make a mental note of where it is or mark the position if safe to do so, take notes if you can of what it looks like and contact the Coastguard on 999 immediately.

"Do not touch, move or even lift the object."
