Bomb Dredged Up During Beach Replenishment
Sutton, United Kingdom A dredger pulling sand from the bottom of the seabed 4-miles out from shore discovered a munition item in the process. The captain of the vessel called the Yarmouth Coastguard who responded with technical support from the Royal Navy EOD Team from Portsmouth. EOD boarded the vessel while the 22-man crew was safely evacuated. EOD rendered the item safe before taking it to shore for proper disposal. No injuries were reported and the crew was allowed to return after the incident.
