Totland, United Kingdom A team for the Royal Navy EOD unit from Portsmouth were called to respond to ordnance on the beach. The item was initially found by a civilian walking on the beach who notified local police. An exclusion area was setup around the area and guarded overnight until EOD could arrive the next day.
EOD identified the item as a degraded smoke grenade. EOD conducted a controlled detonation of the item to remove the hazard. The area was re-opened to the public following the response.
