Sea Mine Sparks Alert on Scottish Coast

Ardrossan, Scotland The Ardrossan Coastguard Rescue Team was called in to examine a suspected sea mine that washed up on Scotland's west coast. Police cordoned off the area and sent images of the device to EOD at the Faslane Naval Base for assessment.

The munition was determined to be a practice mine and not dangerous to the public. According to a statement from the coastguard, "Arrangements were made for the object to be recovered by the Royal Navy in due course with Coastguard Incident tape placed around the object to mitigate any future callouts prior to its recovery."
