Ordnance Washes Ashore

Suffolk Beach, United Kingdom Police officer were called to respond to a call from a civilian walking the beach concerning a potential UXO find. Police inspected the item and notified an EOD unit from Colchester for assistance.


EOD identified the item as munitions debris from a WWI era mortar round and determined it to be inert. A social media post following the incident from the police read as follows: "Fortunately this example was inert, the beach was quiet and the mortar was removed without incident by the Army. It's not uncommon for old ordnance to be found washed up on Suffolk beaches. Should you find something similar on a beach or inland, don't move it - dial 999."
